Celebrating I Love To Read Month with the Blues & Moose

by Tyler Vitt - Tuesday, Feb 09, 2016 at 2:37pm

February is I Love To Read Month, and McNally Robinson is proud to be teaming up with the Winnipeg Blues and the Manitoba Moose to celebrate literacy in our schools and community.

Throughout the month, the Winnipeg Blues will be visiting schools across Winnipeg to exercise both the minds and bodies of students with their Read and Run program. Players from the Blues will be reading to classes, answering their questions about hockey, and then leading each class in a run. Each school will also be entered in to a draw to win a donation of books from McNally Robinson for their library.

Meanwhile, the Manitoba Moose will be celebrating with their Stick to Reading initiative. Students and teachers from Winnipeg schools can enter for their chance to win a visit from Moose players, where the players will interact with the students and read to them in their classroom. For more information about how schools can enter, visit the Moose website here.

The Manitoba Moose will also be accepting donations of new or gently used children's books to give to schools and community services. The donations can be dropped off at our Grant Park bookstore, and for each donation you will receive a buy-one-get-one-free voucher for tickets to the Stick To Reading Moose game on March 28th, as well as a ballot for a chance to win a signed Josh Morrisey jersey.

Thank you to the Winnipeg Blues and the Manitoban Moose for taking such a keen interest in supporting literacy and helping to foster a better future for our students. McNally Robinson is eager and proud to sponsor their cause.
