G.H. Dawe School has been chosen as the recipient for Indigo’s 2016 Adopt a School program.

The three-week fundraising program runs to Oct. 9 during which time Red Deer’s Chapters store will fundraise to revitalize the school’s library.

Fairview School and St. Patrick’s Community School also have their own fundraising pages through adoptaschool.indigo.ca where online donations can be made.

Participating schools receive 100 per cent of donations raised in-store and online. Schools will also receive 30 per cent off all books at Indigo, Chapters and Coles stores.

Indigo Love of Reading Foundation will offer a matching program for all online donations so for every $20 donation, which is the equivalent value of two books, the school will receive a third book for free.

People can also support the schools without making a donation by sharing a short story on the online profile of a participating school. If their story is selected to be featured on the Adopt a School website, the foundation will donate a book to that school’s library for free.
