TM Roberts taking part in Indigo Love of Reading
We are very excited to share that TM Roberts Elementary School in Cranbrook will be participating in the Indigo Love of Reading Foundation’s Adopt a School program this fall, which runs from September 13 to October 3.
This initiative connects a nearby Indigo, Chapters or Coles with TM Roberts 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.
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. Those who wish to support can do so by making a donation in store or through the online Adopt a School fundraiser.
Whether supporting in-store or online, 100% of the funds raised through kiosk donations or the online fundraising pages for each school 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.
