Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
Last Saturday 1,007 kids, 402
volunteers, 98 parents, and 22 teachers & staff helped to make our Music & Celebrations reading clubs our 6th biggest March of all time!
Saturday was particularly special because we welcomed our 20,000th new volunteer! Our first reading clubs were in May 1999, when 8 volunteers read to 20 children at Gratts Elementary. Thank you so much for helping us achieve this important milestone in Los Angeles volunteering!
Please also join us in thanking the wonderfully talented and generous musicians who performed for the kids on Saturday!
Looking ahead to next month, please sign up early for the next reading clubs! Click here to submit your RSVP for our Amazing Animals & Interesting Environments Reading Clubs on April 8th, then take a moment to join our April 8th Facebook event to help spread the word.
