Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

We need 21 more readers (15 at Los Angeles Elementary) for this Saturday's reading clubs. To volunteer, visit our website TODAY and sign up!

We can also use our more experienced volunteers to help train new volunteers, as a GLC, or as a Site Coordinator, so please email us at info@readingtokids.org if you can help in any of those roles.

Please also help recruit more volunteers by joining our March 11th Facebook event. You can then invite your Facebook friends to the celebration, too.

On Saturday we'll have very talented musicians performing. Click here to find out who will be performing at your school!

If you're signed up but can't join us, please click here to cancel before 2pm Friday so someone else may take your place.
