Metro Vancouver Book Sale Raises $1,571 for MOSAIC

Metro Vancouver held a two-day book sale on June 1st and 2nd with all proceeds donated to MOSAIC’s Short-Term Literacy Class for Women with Child-Minding, part of our Surrey Project for Refugee Families program. The book sale raised $1,571.70!

MOSAIC joined in on the fun and held a book draw with the lucky winner, Maria Tylman, winning a beautiful edition of “BC People, Portraits of Diversity in BC”.

Thank you to Julie Lamb and Christine Norquist for arranging the event, and for encouraging people to read and support their community at the same time!
