Indigo Love of Reading Foundation’s Adopt a School program

St. Marguerite Bourgeoys Catholic School in Innisfail is one of 182 high-needs schools across Canada looking forward to enhancing their library collections through the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation’s adopt a school program.

Until Oct. 6, Chapters in Red Deer will fundraise on behalf of the school to upgrade its library collection.

This year, in addition to the three-week, in-store fundraising program, supporters will be able to purchase books from St. Marguerite Bourgeoys’ book registry, and Indigo will match the donation.

Each school’s unique registry will consist of 50 books. When a book is purchased, Indigo will provide an additional copy of that book to the school to enable even more children and youth to benefit.

The Indigo Love of Reading Foundation is now in its 11th year supporting children’s literacy.
