Boston Pizza Dorval
Literacy has a friend in town at Boston Pizza Dorval Drive. Read our May 2009 news release.
Halton Multicultural Council
We support Multiculturalism Day in June of each year by advertising in the program for this event held at Bronte Creek Provincial Park.
Oakville Public Library
The Council has a longstanding relationship with the library. We are fortunate to have an office in the Woodside library, and receive many other kinds of support from all levels of staff. Woodside library is also home to a wonderful collection of adult literacy resources and readers.
Rotary Club of Oakville Trafalgar
In 2007, this group of local volunteers was able to give 10 of our tutor/student pairs access to a new online learning program for adult literacy students. Tutors received training to help their students work through the program at their own pace.
The club donated four laptops to the Council so that students and tutors could work online during their sessions together.
Starbucks Coffee and Panago Pizza
It’s not just about the food and drink – we appreciate the support of our partners in Oakville. Both are happy to donate refreshments for our meetings, and Starbucks staff are always ready to help at our annual used book sale.
United Way of Oakville
We are lucky to be a member agency of United Way of Oakville. Besides financial support, United Way provides ideas, inspiration, friendship and contacts for us. We were also able to re-do our website through a special United Way grant.
Two Oakville Literacy Council students were featured in the 2007 United Way campaign video called Building Independence. You can view it here. Note that we are the second agency profiled in the video, after Food for Life.
Also in 2007, a much-needed United Way grant allowed us to replace our aging office computer. We are so grateful for the improvement to our operations!
