Brent Kennedy joins Adopt a School program

Local elementary school participating in fundraiser to provide support for library resources.

Brent Kennedy Elementary School in Crescent Valley is participating in the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation’s Adopt a School program.

The fundraising initiative connects an Indigo, Chapters or Coles store with a local school and the neighbouring community to help provide support for valuable library resources.

As the pandemic continues to impact the way students access reading materials, the Adopt a School program is continuing in its endeavour to upgrade library collections with updated and diverse learning materials, further enhancing their education and literacy skills.

The fundraising campaign will run through Oct. 3.

This year, 153 Canadian high-needs elementary schools across the country have been “adopted” by a Indigo, Chapters and Coles store who will fundraise on their behalf.

To support the school, you can make a donation in store or through the online Adopt a School fundraiser at indigoloveofreadingfoundation.givecloud.co/fundraisers.

Whether supporting in-store or online, 100 per cent of the funds raised will be donated to participating high-needs schools.

As these schools and their students continue to navigate through the complexities of education during the pandemic, support is more essential than ever, and the opportunity to enrich the lives of students through their school libraries has never been greater.

The Indigo Love of Reading Foundation strongly believes that providing access to the right book at the right time can significantly change a child’s life, propelling them toward success in education, and in life.
