A group of children from the P.E.I. Literacy Alliance’s Ready-Set-Learn program are pictured above holding a cheque for $19,388.46 donated from the annual Raise-A-Reader fundraiser.
The campaign, held every September across P.E.I. by The Guardian and Journal Pioneer, raises funds for Island literacy programs by collecting donations in exchange for free newspapers.
The Ready-Set-Learn program offers free tutoring in the summer and literacy camps on school PD days.
