The Nanaimo Regional General Hospital invites you to join us April 12th for a special evening of storytelling with artist and author Roy Henry Vickers to support our Newborn Literacy Program, Roots to Read.
Established in March 2022, the Roots to Read program was implemented by perinatal staff as part of caregiving teaching to promote and support an understanding of the importance of early childhood literacy. The Roots to Read book bag includes 2 carefully curated new books, educational cards, tips for parents with babies and information about local library access. This program is fully dependent on donations, and 100% of all donations will go directly to funding the program.
As an added bonus, Nanaimo Foundation is matching donations made to the Roots to Read program up until April 12th (up to $10,000). If you are unable to attend the event in person, this is a great way to contribute to the program and double your donation.
WHEN: April 12, 2023 at 6:30pm
