Save the Children-Scholastic Canada

Supporting education in Canada

Classrooms care: Reading is Giving

 

Since 2008, Scholastic Canada has supported First Nations communities by donating 30,000 books annually to Save the Children.

We partner with Indigenous communities and organizations to distribute these books, including North South Partnership for Children, Kenora Chiefs Advisory, and Fort Francis Tribal Health.  To date we have distributed over 90,000 books to over 15 Indigenous communities.

This collaboration has proven so successful that in 2010, one community renovated their library to accommodate the number of new books they received: much to the delight of children in the community.
