Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
We still have a few spots available for our popular Mysteries & Adventure reading clubs this Saturday, so please
sign up or keep checking today and tomorrow for openings.
(If you are signed up but can't attend after all, please
click here to cancel
before 3:00 p.m. tomorrow so someone else can read!)
We're also excited to give away a refurbished computer to one lucky student at four of our partner schools! Thank you to all who
donated computers to us, and please let us know if you can donate a computer or tablet for our other schools.
Note about Alta Loma: Due to the potential United Teachers Los Angeles strike, the local district for Alta Loma Elementary School has elected to cancel all Saturday programs on January 12th. This includes the Alta Loma reading clubs.
Please consider volunteering at any of our other 7 schools. Alta Loma remains an enthusiastic Reading to Kids partner school, and our reading clubs will return to Alta Loma on Saturday, Feb. 9th!
We are closely monitoring the possible strike that may start on Monday, and will post any relevant updates via email, Twitter, Facebook, and
GET A NEW COMPUTER OR TABLET?
DONATE YOUR OLD ONE TO A KID!
This Saturday we would love to give away a computer or iPad to one lucky kid at all of our schools.
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
firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
