Fostering care

Surrey residents will have two opportunities to attend SOS Children’s Village BC book sales this summer.

The fundraisers are scheduled for July 14 and Aug. 25 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at SOS BC, 102-5830 176A St.

Money raised will go towards supporting the organization’s Fostering Growth Program, which aims to enhance the positive outcomes of foster kids in school, increasing their ability to form healthy relationships, enhancing their comfort and confidence in social situations and giving their natural talents an opportunity to flourish.

“Through your purchase of a gently used book or by making a donation at one of the (book sales) you are helping provide unique opportunities and programs so that kids in foster care can achieve their potential,” a release states.

Books are available in a wide range of titles, authors and genres for 50 cents each.

More book sale dates will be announced soon.
