Let's Read gratefully acknowledges the support of TD Bank Group in our family literacy campaign.

Let's Read Funding Announcement - July 2018

TD Bank Group, a strong supporter of children's literacy, is sponsoring Let's Read again this year!  With this funding, free copies of Even Superheroes Have Bad Days will be distributed to families. Families in Waterloo Region will be reading together and have their own copy of the book to keep.  When books are readily available at home, children score higher on reading tests and are more interested in reading for pleasure.

Since its inception in 2009, the Let’s Read Family Literacy Initiative has been generously supported by a number of community agencies. Past sponsors include:


Emerson Storrs, a TD Branch Manager, presenting a generous donation to Kim Krueger-Kischak
