Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
Last Saturday 754 kids, 409 volunteers,
58 parents, and 20 teachers & staff
joined us for our "Music & Celebrations" reading clubs!
We thank all of the wonderfully talented and generous musicians who entertained them on Saturday!
Above is a photo of the
Los Angeles Elementary Chorus performing for us at their school. Click our 2018 musicians link to see photos of three of our other performers, too!
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 clubs on April 14th, then take a moment to join our April 14th Facebook event to help spread the word.

So far they have raised $10,832 while training for hundreds of miles, and they have just five more days to reach their $20,000 fundraising goal! If you can donate a buck a mile
to any runner, you'll help fuel them towards the finish line!

their volunteer FAQ.
