Week of Kindness at VLC

November 18-22 is a Week of Kindness at the VLC and in Trillium Lakelands DSB.

Kindness Idea 1: Give the Gift of Books

Do you have some books collecting dust on a shelf? Why not pack them up and take them to the local library, school, hospital or seniors' residence? Many local organizations can often use the books in their current circulation or sell them during a "Book Sale" to raise money.
