Organizations Supported by Outreach in 2020 - 2021



Outreach is the EYS Reading Association's effort to reach out to charitable organizations involved in worthy literacy endeavours. With your support, you help us to support local, national, and international literacy-based programs.



The Children’s Book Bank provides free books and literacy support to children and families in high need neighbourhoods across the GTA. The Book Bank also provides books and literacy materials through community centres, schools, health clinics and social agencies throughout the city. Our donation supports these efforts. Book donations are also welcome!



Founded by Inuit singer/songwriter Susan Aglukark, The Arctic Rose Foundation instills hope for Northern Inuit, First Nations and Metis children, youth and their families through the creation of physically, emotionally, mentally, culturally safe places and the provision of holistic, adaptable programming that engages, nurtures and supports them in healthy and meaningful ways. Our donation supports the Messy Book Program, the Youth Leadership & Mentor Program, and the ᑲᒪᔩᑦ (Kamajiit) Program.


The Free Reading Program provides free online Foundations to Level 6 Reading, Language & Grammar program that kids love. This year we will be supporting literacy programs in Athens, Greece. Our donation supports the purchase of dual-language books for displaced children and their families.

Thank you for sharing our commitment to making a difference for the charitable organizations we are supporting in 2020-2021!
