Metro Vancouver Book Sale Raises $1,571 for MOSAIC

June 3, 2017

In early June, Metro Vancouver employees held a two-day book sale 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”.

Julie Lamb, Christine Norquist, and Bettina Lindenbach, the book sale organizers, came to visit MOSAIC’s new Head Office at 5575 Boundary Road in Vancouver. Meeting with our Senior Manager of Fund Development, Susan Rae, and other team members, they were able to see our new space and have a photo with staff to thank them again for supporting their community!
