Literacy fundraising citrus-y sweet at Chilliwack’s Book Man

Help local bookseller raise vital funds for local literacy programs

Literacy is getting citrusy at The Book Man.

The local book seller is stepping up its fundraising for literacy programs throughout this week, with the fourth annual Citrus-y Literacy campaign.

Anyone can drop by The Book Man to donate $2, $5, $10 or $20, and write a personalized message on a lemon, lime or orange. Those citrus-infused messages will be used to create a fabulously fresh window display, and the money raised will go toward The Chilliwack Learning Community Society.

They are collecting funds until June 5. The Chilliwack Learning Society was founded in 1990 with the aim to “promote literacy for all groups and individuals”.  They build relationships and partnerships to better meet the learning needs of all community members, to make possible the successful learning, development and growth of the individual, the family and the community.

They operate programs like Early Family Literacy, Youth Literacy, Adult Literacy, Christmas Reading to Loved Ones, and iPad Training for Seniors, all of which require funding to function throughout the year.
