We are very happy to announce that at our April 9th reading clubs we will begin reading at MacArthur Park Elementary!

Please help inspire students at MacArthur Park with a love of reading by signing up to volunteer for this momentous occasion! This is your chance to be at a first reading club at one of our schools!

Specifically, we are looking for Site Coordinators, Training Coordinators, GLCs, a Bagel Runner and/or Food Runner, and experienced volunteers to start at MacArthur Park. If you are interested in getting more involved, please contact us at info@readingtokids.org.

We will also need two toasters for bagels and a coffee pot that can brew at least 20 cups of coffee at a time. If you can donate any of those, please let us know!
