This year at our annual State of the Province Address on Dec. 6, The Chamber is partnering with United Way Winnipeg to collect new or gently used children’s books.
All the books collected will go to 24 local family resource centres that service 35,000 children and families across Winnipeg. Learn more about the important work our local family resource centres are doing here.
Your donation of a new or gently use book will ensure preschool children throughout Winnipeg have the opportunity to grow a love for reading and develop critical language skills.
To help bring back nostalgic memories of reading as a child, The Chamber team compiled a list their favourite children’s books:
Curious George Series by H.A. Rey – Anne Bakuska, Director of Membership Development
Ada Twist, Scientist by Andrea Beaty – Alana Cuma, Executive Vice President
Franklin series by Paulette Bourgeois – Catherine Holder, Executive Assistant
I want my Hat Back by Jon Klassen – Colin Fast, Director of Policy
The Man who Didn’t Wash his Dishes by Phyllis Krasilovsky – Ellen Kornelsen, Creative Designer
Toot by Leslie Patricelli – Jackie Gaudry, Business Resource Manager
The Winnipeg Chamber is a proud supporter of United Way of Winnipeg and always urges our business community to help. After all, it’s what Winnipeggers do best.
