The Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy’s (CBAL) ninth annual Reach a Reader – Books for Kids fundraiser is happening today from 11-2 p.m. at Save-On-Foods Creston and the Canyon Street walkthrough.
This year the Creston Valley Advance, Blue Sky Clothing and Save-On-Foods Creston are lending their support to raise $30,000 for free books and literacy programs for thousands of children and their families in communities across the Columbia Basin and Boundary.
“You can support the Books for Kids campaign by making a donation for a copy of this week’s Creston Valley Advance or at Save-On-Foods Creston barbeque fundraiser,” said Gillian Wells CBAL Community Literacy Coordinator.
“I am so grateful for the generosity of our community and the support from our numerous volunteers,” said Wells “So if you’re feeling hungry or need some Blue Sky merino socks for Christmas presents, come by today and help support our event.”
All the money raised in Creston will be used to support family literacy programs and events in the Creston community. Donations can be made directly online at cbal.org.
