For the love of reading

Hello All,
Rayleigh Elementary has partnered with Chapters and Indigo books to raise money for books in the classroom. Every year, Indigo, Chapters and Coles stores across Canada “adopt” a local high-needs elementary school and fundraise on their behalf for a three-week period in the Fall. As part of this program, the Foundation also hosts an online fundraising platform which further supports high-needs elementary schools in raising funds for their libraries. For every $20 online donation made to a participating school, LoR will donate $10.00 (the approximate value of 1 book) to the school, up to a maximum of $1,000 per school (the approximate value of 100 books). Any donation of less than $20 will not be matched by LoR and in the case of donations that are in increments of less than $20, Love of Reading Foundation will match the donation to the lowest increment of $20 (e.g. for a $30 donation, LoR will donate $10 and for a $50 donation LoR will donate $20). The program will run between September 16 and October 8, so we are right in the middle of our event. Please go to the website below and help our students read.
