Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
This Saturday we are celebrating "Independence and Growing Up" at our
July 12th Reading Clubs. The reading clubs are currently full, but spots will open up from now until the RSVPs close at 3pm tomorrow. Please check back often to sign up.
If you're signed up but can't join us, please cancel your RSVP as soon as possible so that someone else may take your place.
THE FLUOR BLOG IS HAPPENING
Two weeks ago we announced
that thanks to your online votes,
Fluor awarded us a $10,000
grant from their
Global Community Project Fund!
Fluor's grant will help us host a "Wonders of Science and Technology"-themed
Reading Club on November 8th (also our annual College Spirit Month). Fluor volunteers will join us that morning as we read to the children and discuss the importance of science and technology-based fields of study.
Reading to Kids volunteer and Fluor employee
Jinhwa Chun has begun
blogging about this project. Please check out her blog
for some fun pictures as she encourages her fellow employees to
volunteer with us!
At the end of the year we are also eligible to win an additional $10,000 Best-in-Class award from Fluor. That award will go to the project that demonstrates the most progress, Fluor employee support, impact, and visibility in the community.
