Take Pride in Reading

Please be advised that all programming is temporarily suspended while staff are furloughed due to Covid-19.  We expect this suspension to last March 25-May 5.  Please check back for updates, and in the meantime, you may reach out to our Executive Director, Tom Ethans, with questions/concerns:  tom@takepride.mb.ca or 204 792 5464


In the interim, we ask all of you to help carry our mission:

Help a friend or neighbour in need. Take a bucket or bag with you on your daily walks, and pick up litter.

Remember to wear gloves! Spread messages of hope and goodwill in your neighbourhood—use sidewalk chalk to write a message or create a cheerful drawing, or show off your crafty side with window art. 

Take care of each other.

An opportunity for elementary students to experience the joy of reading while receiving an important message about caring for our planet. 

Take Pride in Reading focuses on encouraging civic pride and environmental awareness through reading. Take Pride Winnipeg! staff and volunteers will be available throughout February and March to visit students in Kindergarten to Grade 3. 

Ask about having your presentation in French! 

To book your visit or for more information please contact Carrie Lund: carrie@takepride.mb.ca or 204 956 7590.

Program Partners: Canada Life, MARRC (Used Oil Recycling), EPRA (Electronic Products Recycling Association), Province of Manitoba, Winnipeg Foundation.
