The event will support ALSO’s family literacy programming in the community. We offer the Reading and Parents Program (RAPP) to 6 partner sites serving over 150 low income families each year. Vanier, Rideau Rockcliffe, Overbrooke and Lowertown all have a high percentage of vulnerable families with children who are not as ready for school as they need to be. RAPP provides parents with the skills they need to better support their child’s learning at home. All proceeds go into direct service at the community level.
Thank you for supporting 150 local families served by ALSO’s family literacy programs.

PERSISTING BEYOND MARGINS
ALSO has long been a champion for family literacy in Ottawa. We persist beyond margins, serving our community’s most vulnerable families. The families we serve persist beyond margins, struggling to support their child’s learning and ensuring that everyone in the family has enough. This is no small task. We encourage you to persist beyond margins, reaching out, getting involved and supporting a small local charity doing good work – it’s not just about the big guys!
THANK YOU TO OUR SPONSORS!
