DCR Strategies’ Book Drive For The Children’s Book Bank Toronto Charity A Page-Turning Success
DCR Strategies teamed up with The Children’s Book Bank, a charitable organization whose mission is to provide free books and literacy support to children, to host a special book drive in order to help build and sustain the charity’s inventory of books. The results? A page-turning bestseller!
Beginning in late February and ending in early March, the book drive met our goal of donating over 500 books to children living in low-income and high-needs neighbourhoods and communities across the Greater Toronto Area. As well, the drive raised several hundred dollars worth of cash donations, which will go towards supporting the charity’s various literacy programs, including Dictionaries for Newcomers, Books Across The City, and School Trips with Story Times, as well as provide additional books and literacy materials through community centres, schools, and health clinics throughout the city. It was one for the record books!
In the spring and summer, members of the DCR Strategies team will be visiting the Toronto charity and volunteering to read books to children who visit the charity.
One small donation can speak volumes, and make all the difference in helping a child reach the next chapter in their lives. For additional information about The Children’s Book Bank, please visit www.childrensbookbank.com. To contribute financial support, please click the “Donate” button.
