Jackson Elementary chosen for Adopt a School program

Abbotsford school selected by Indigo Love of Reading Foundation for library fundraising campaign

Jackson Elementary in Abbotsford

Jackson Elementary in Abbotsford has been chosen as a participant in Indigo’s 2016 Adopt a School program.

This means that the Coles book store at Sevenoaks Shopping Centre will fundraise on the school’s behalf during the three-week campaign, which began Sept. 18 and runs until Oct. 9.

The funds raised will go toward revitalizing the school’s library.

All participating schools receive 100 per cent of the donations fundraised in store and online.

Schools will also receive 30 per cent off all books at Indigo, Chapters and Coles stores.

The Indigo Love of Reading Foundation will offer a matching program for all online donations. With every $20 donation received (the equivalent value of two books), the school will receive a third book for free.

Canadians can also support without a donation by sharing a short story on the online profile of a participating school.

If that story is selected to be featured on the Adopt a School website, the foundation will donate a book to that school’s library for free.

Visit adoptaschool.indigo.ca for more information.
