We support literacy initiatives here at mobo because it directly affects opportunity. More than any other social change, turning our attention to literacy issues directly impacts health, employment, finance and justice in our City and Province.
Our good friends at READ Saskatoon recently shared some stats at their AGM on June 26, 2019:
- “1/3 of Saskatchewan adults struggle with literacy
- 57% of Saskatchewan adults score in the two lowest numeracy skill levels
- Of Saskatchewan adults who scored in the two lowest literacy skill levels, 34% have not completed high school and 65% are employed.
Literacy is linked to economic and personal success: the jobs people find, the salaries they make, upgrade opportunities they enjoy and their ability to participate in their community are all directly related to their literacy skills.” That is why we support literacy!
All proceeds raised from the sale of our apparel samples will be donated directly to READ Saskatoon again this year. The 2nd Annual Client BBQ and Sample Sale is next Wednesday, the 17th of July! We hope you can swing by between 11am – 2pm for a burger, a dog and some cake while picking up some great clothing at ridiculously low prices of $25.00 or less!
Yes, you read that right! Samples from great brands we carry are included; Under Armour, Stormtech, Eddie Bauer, North Face, Adidas, PUMA, Nike, Carharrt, etc!
Send an email with your RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by this Friday, July 12th.
We hope top see you!
