Thanks to your help, A Reader’s Heaven Makes a Donation

ThankIMAG0241_1 you to all our customers that purchased a book in the month of April from A Reader’s Heaven. You’re purchase added up to a big help.

There is an unseen need in our community and we wanted to help. The Lithgow Women and Children’s Crisis Centre helps survivors of domestic violence start over with dignity. Because of the nature of what they do, their location is kept secret and often their work goes unthanked in our community.

A Reader’s Heaven donated $1 for every book sold in the month of April to the LWCCC. We also collected boxes of children and adult books to donate to the new library they plan to build in their facility. We handed over the total amount, approximately $1000 worth of cash and books, to the LWCCC on Thursday, June 2, 2016. One of their workers was kind enough to pose for a photograph for the Village Voice, pictured above.

We wanted to give something back to the community that gives so much to us. We couldn’t have done it without you. Thank you to all our customers who helped and to those who gave a little bit more.
