Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
We hope you've been enjoying a summer read in a cool spot!
We are looking for another 38 readers for our August 12th "Arts & Creativity" clubs, so please
click here to submit your RSVP to join us that morning!
Please then also "join" our
August 12th reading club event on
Facebook and invite your friends!
These August reading clubs will be a little smaller because the schools will still be on their summer break, so be sure to sign up early!
Or, if you want to help in other ways (Curriculum, Marketing, etc.), and have volunteered with us three or more times,
HELP US FIND GRANTS!
Did you know Reading to Kids receives about
half of our funding from corporation and foundation
grants? For example, over the last five years alone
six of our volunteers helped us receive $103,000 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 at
You may help us buy thousands of books for kids!
We are especially looking for someone who works at the The Capital Group Companies.
