On Jan. 29, volunteers will be selling 100 Mile House Free Press newspapers by donation at Tim Hortons from 7:30 to 9 a.m.

What a great way to celebrate Reach a Reader Day – with a Tim’s coffee and the Free Press newspaper.

Reach a Reader Day (RAR) is one of the Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy (CCPL) fundraising activities. The purpose of the event is to raise awareness of the importance of literacy and to raise funds for local literacy programs, including financial literacy, Partner Assisted Learning and Books for Babies.

All CCPL programs are free.

The CCPL would like to thank the Free Press for donating the newspaper on Jan. 29 for RAR and for the support it has given CCPL over the years.

Our literacy skills affect everything we do in our daily lives – the choices we make with our children, our money and how we handle ourselves in every situation. By improving our literacy skills, we will make better choices and improve our chances for better jobs, healthier living and a more joyful life.

Please come out on Jan. 29 and buy a Free Press newspaper for a donation to show your support of literacy. All money raised by RAR goes to supporting the many programs offered by the CCPL.

If you or your organization would like further information about the Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy Society and its role in the community, please contact it through Melody Newcombe at 250-945-4199.
