Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

August arrives next week, and on August 11th we're celebrating creativity at our Arts & Entertainment reading clubs! Click here to submit your RSVP today.

Even if your school is full, we are particularly in need of volunteers to be Site Coordinators, Grade Level Coordinators, Check-in Helpers, and New and Returning Volunteer Trainers.

If you have volunteered with us before and would like to step into any of these rewarding roles, please e-mail info@readingtokids.org.

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!

BE A READING TO KIDS AMBASSADOR

Volunteers at Charles White Elementary

With the 2018-19 school year beginning August 14th, we will have many opportunities for you to help us promote Reading to Kids at our partner schools as a Reading to Kids Ambassador.

There are three different ways you can help: Kindergarten Orientations, Teacher Breakfast Deliveries, and Back-to-School-Nights.

We'll supply everything you need, including what to say at the Kindergarten Orientations. Although it's great if you can speak Spanish (even a little), all of our parent materials are bilingual, and there's always someone who can translate for you at the school.

Our Ambassadors always have a great time with the kids and parents - come find out why!

If you can be an Ambassador, please e-mail us at info@readingtokids.org or call (310) 479-7455.

THREE MORE COMPUTERS OR TABLETS WANTED TO GIVE TO KIDS!

At our August 11th 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 email us at info@readingtokids.org if you can help make a kid very happy!
