Thursday, Jan. 24, volunteers in Williams Lake sold the Williams Lake Tribune by donation for Cariboo-Chilcotin Partners for Literacy.

We raised more than $2,964 in a few short hours.

Volunteers said that everyone was so generous!

The fundraiser is also about raising awareness of literacy issues in the Cariboo.  Many of our community members struggle with reading and math.

Our goal is to let everyone know that there is help in the community.

CCPL would like to thank all the volunteers who came out on a fairly cold morning to sell the papers, all the businesses in town who helped make this happen, and to the Williams Lake Tribune for their continued support and giving us the newspapers to sell.

The volunteers said it was really fun selling the paper and many have already volunteered to help sell papers in 2014.

Thank you to everyone who made this possible by buying a paper.
