We hope you are doing well during these unusual times!
We continue to be unsure when our next reading clubs will occur, and monitor https://achieve.lausd.net/latestnews for any further clarifications that we will post at https://www.readingtokids.org.
Since we needed to cancel last Saturday's Music & Entertainment reading clubs, we will carry over that theme and those same read aloud books at our next reading clubs, whenever those may be held after the schools are back in session.
Perhaps we will even have our wonderfully talented and generous musicians we had scheduled for last Saturday join us if they are available at those next reading clubs!
The Red Cross is looking for volunteers to help distribute meals to LAUSD children.

COMPUTERS OR TABLETS WANTED
TO GIVE TO KIDS!
At our 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 8 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 to help make a kid very happy!
