Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Our August 13th "Arts & Entertainment" reading clubs are almost full, so please sign up and also join our Operations Team!

We are particularly in need of volunteers to be Grade Level Coordinators and to lead New and Returning Volunteer Trainings on Saturday, August 13th. If you'd like to step into any of these important 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 read with us!

3 USED COMPUTER MONITORS,
IPADS WANTED

At our August 13th reading clubs, we would like to give away a computer or iPad to one lucky kid at each school next month.

If you or your employer have any working computer monitors (LCD screens only, please), iPads, or similar tablets, we can give them to deserving kids!

Please email us at info@readingtokids.org for details.

COLLEGE LOGO ITEMS NEEDED FOR
NOV. 12TH READING CLUBS

November will be our annual college spirit month, and we want to give each child who attends something small with a college insignia on it.

If you can obtain college-related items, stickers are always a hit with the younger kids. For the older kids we like to give them pins/buttons, pens, pencils, notebooks, etc. But really, anything with a college logo will help plant the seeds of college interest.

UCLA bears donated for College Spirit Month

If you work at or have a connection with a college, please help us by asking for a donation of items with that college's insignia. If you like, you can click this link for a request letter/email you can send. Great sources of items with your college's logo are the athletic department and the bookstore!

To "sponsor" one grade at one school, we need about 40 of one item. To sponsor all of one grade at all 8 schools, then we need about 300 of one item. And anything in between would be very helpful!
