1000×5 CHILDREN’S LITERACY IS WORKING TOWARDS CHANGE
With help from people like you, we bring children’s literacy into more homes. Every month we donate over 1500 books for babies and toddlers. We invite families donate picture books; organise volunteers to sort and gift package; ensure our partners meet with parents and young children to distribute books to children. 1000×5 and you are creating real change for the children in the Capital Region.
We Collect Books
Books are the key to success. We rely on donations from families and supporters of gently used books for babies and preschoolers at local elementary schools. Our partners also donate books or provide financial assistance so that we can purchase books. If you wish to donate, please get in touch and let us know.
Our leadership team and 20+ volunteers oversee 1000×5 in the the Capital Region, covering the Westshore, Victoria and the Peninsula. These three areas have distinct projects that operate with respected host agencies with charitable registration status.
Our Leadership Team
1000×5 is stronger together. Our leaders are actively engaged with our community using their years of expertise to help us achieve our goals.
