Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
Have we got a story for you!
First of all, last Saturday 161 kids, 122 volunteers,
29 parents, and 16 teachers & staff
joined us for our July 8th reading clubs, smack dab in the middle of summer!
Alta Loma Site Coordinator Mariel Rubio also had a wonderful moment with a volunteer who was a former Reading to Kids kid who came back to volunteer! Click the below photo to read their story!
