It takes a community to hold a book sale
Support Group is a charity that prides itself in keeping costs to a bare minimum. We do not incur the cost of maintaining an office facility, however some of our fundraising activities require space. These can be hard to find, and rental costs are prohibitive.
Our annual Book Sale is one such event that is held over two weekends at two locations. We have looked to the Ottawa community and they have stepped forward. We would like to recognize and offer a special thank you to the following organizations that generously offer us their ever-elusive commodity of SPACE.
From humble beginnings at the old Puzzles Restaurant in 2006, we expanded to Dovercourt Community Centre. The centre provides their main floor to hold the event on the first weekend. We are an annual event and the community centre and people look forward to browsing our collection while their children participate in the great courses offered at the Centre.
For the last three years the Westboro Branch of the Royal Canadian Legion has been providing us with their downstairs facility to hold the second weekend of the book sale. We are delighted to offer the Legion our remaining books which they use in its fundraising efforts. We are honoured to support this most deserving organization.
Dymon Storage has come on board this year, 2015, and is providing us with a storage unit in their Kanata facility. We were homeless for a couple of months until they came forward and provided us with new digs for our most critical sorting and collecting months — August and September.
A huge thank you to our community supporters! We couldn’t do it without you.
