Kids Can Press joins classroom refurbishment project

Corus Entertainment's Carlos Bustamante, who helped work on the project

From Aug. 11–14, staff from Toronto’s Kids Can Press and parent company Corus Entertainment teamed up with Frontier College, a non-profit literacy organization aimed at aboriginal communities, for a classroom refurbishment project in Cat Lake First Nation.

TD Bank oversaw the donation of Kids Can Press books to the library of the fly-in Northwestern Ontario community’s Learning Together Centre, where renovations were completed in time for the new school year.

This is the second in a series of planned literacy projects by Frontier College, TD, and Corus, and follows last year’s Summer Aboriginal Literacy Camp initiative.
