Northern BC Distance Education in Fort St. John selected for adopt a school program

FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Northern BC Distance Education in Fort St. John has been selected as one of the recipients of the Adopt a School program.

Coles in the Totem Mall will be fundraising for the school during the three-week event. With the money, the northern BC distance education will be able to revamp the library.

Bert Ambrose Elementary and Robert Ogilvie Elementary in Fort St. John have their own fundraising pages on adoptaschool.indigo.ca. Online donations can be made through the website.

If you donate, schools will get 100% of the donations that are made at stores. They also receive all donations made online. Schools will receive 30% off all books at Indigo, Chapters and Coles stores.

The Indigo Love of Reading Foundation is offering a matching program for all online donations.

It keeps getting better. With every $20 donation received (which is the value of two books), the school will receive a third book for free.

There is also “Tell a story, give a story” where you can also support without making a donation by sharing a short story on the online profile of a participating school. If the 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.

The Adopt a School program is running from September 18th to October 9th.
