We have just 9 days to recruit 149 more volunteers! Please help us make these reading clubs a success by signing up today.

Then tweet @readingtokids, join our April 9th Facebook event, post to Facebook, and email your friends, letting them know that we still need more volunteers.

Be sure to tell your friends and family:

1) The reading clubs are the morning of April 9th near Downtown LA
2) Volunteers must sign up ahead of time at www.readingtokids.org

3) The school at which you will be reading

If you're signed up but can't join us, please click here to cancel so that someone else may take your place.



Volunteers needed at Reading to Kids

One reason we need so many more volunteers is because at our April 9th reading clubs we will begin reading at MacArthur Park Elementary!

We're putting together the craft supplies for our new school, and we can really use donations of glue sticks, bottles of glue, and child scissors.

We also need a toaster for bagels and a coffee pot that can brew at least 20 cups of coffee at a time. If you can donate any of the above, please let us know at info@readingtokids.org!

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 are also looking for more Site Coordinators at our other schools, too! If you want to step into this important role, please contact us at info@readingtokids.org.
