September 23rd is the Vancouver Sun’s Raise-a-Reader Day!
A few of TransLink`s executives will be selling newspapers to support the event from 7am to 9am on the corners of Seymor & Cordova and Georgia & Burrard in Vancouver.
Come say hi and buy a paper from Colleen Brennan (TransLink’s Vice-President, Communications & Customer Experience), Fred Cummings (TransLink’s Vice-President, Infrastructure Management & Engineering), Barry Kross (Transit Police’s Interim Chief) or Mike Richard (BCRTC’s Acting President and General Manager) and help raise funds in support of literacy efforts in British Columbia.
BC Lions “Felions” and members of the Vancouver Canadians will also be selling papers for the cause!
One-hundred percent of all funds donated for Raise-a-Reader will go to children and family literacy programs, such as the Canucks Family Education Centre, Vancouver Public Library Foundation and Decoda Literacy Solutions.
Last year, the Raise-a-Reader campaign raised almost $450,000 for the literacy community in Metro Vancouver and various cities throughout British Columbia.
