You might be asking ‘why do we have a book sale every year’? Well, where does CFUW PQ get the funds for the scholarships we give out every year?
Our main fundraiser for both the club and our scholarships is our annual Book Sale. We collect books, and jigsaw puzzles all year long and hold a big sale in the fall. The community is a strong supporter of this activity, both by donating books and attending the book sale. The books are all in great condition and very reasonably priced.
From the book sale proceeds we provide monies to the Scholarship and Bursary Trust to fund educational scholarships for women and girls (and some boys too) to study locally, nationally, and internationally. Every book donated and every book bought helps our work.
To attend the book sale: watch for our ads in the PQ news and our ads on local radio.
When collecting books from the drop-box at Save-on-Foods, or receive books from neighbours or friends or an estate, PLEASE follow these NEW guidelines:
DO NOT ACCEPT
ACCEPT only if in Very Good Condition
ACCEPT only if in perfect condition
Please put discarded books in your household refuse bin.
