Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Our July 14th "Summer Fun & Games" reading clubs are full at the moment, but please keep checking back for openings this week and next week!

If you signed up for the reading clubs but can't join us, please cancel your RSVP so that another volunteer can take your place!

JOIN OUR OPERATIONS TEAMS

Veteran volunteers help out with logistics

We need experienced volunteers to help train volunteers, be a GLC, or be a second or third Site Coordinator at any of our schools.

These smaller summer reading clubs are the best times to step into any of these important roles - all training will be pleasantly provided!

Please e-mail us at info@readingtokids.org to help create wonderful reading clubs!

COMPUTERS OR TABLETS WANTED
TO GIVE TO KIDS!

At our August reading clubs we would love to give away a computer or iPad/tablet to one lucky kid at each school.

If you or your employer have any working computers that are less than 6 years old running Windows 7 or later, or any Macintosh computers less than 7 years old, or any iPads or similar tablets, we can give them to deserving kids!

We especially need working computers (CPUs), whether or not they come with monitors, keyboards, etc. Please reply to this email for details to help make a kid very happy!
