Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Our July 14th "Summer Fun & Games" reading clubs for this Saturday are full at the moment, but please keep checking back for openings today and tomorrow before 3pm!

If you signed up for the reading clubs but can't join us, please cancel your RSVP before 3pm tomorrow so someone else may take your place!



Veteran volunteers help out with logistics

We need experienced volunteers to help train volunteers, be a GLC, or especially to 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 to help create wonderful reading clubs!



The Vons Foundation grant check presentation

Did you know Reading to Kids receives about half of our funding from corporation and foundation grants? For example, over the last 12 years three of our volunteers helped us receive $196,000 in grants from their employers!

Please check to see if your employer offers grants that Reading to Kids can apply to, and let us know! You may help us buy thousands of books for kids!


MONDAY, 7/16 AT 6:15PM
