Bright Red Bookshelf
Bright Red Bookshelf in Williams Lake and 100 Mile House is an organization that gives children free access to good books. Since 2012, Heartland Toyota has been taking part by finding and donating interesting reads to the children of Williams Lake. In April Heartland Toyota annually extends their dealership as a home for staff members and customers to drop off a lightly used books. We also provide Bright Red Bookshelf with a truck, which we annually decal, for Bright Red Bookshelf to pick up books from all schools that participate. As promotions for these events are a large way to gather awareness, we also provide the organization with signage to promote the event.
