New Volunteer Record

Last Saturday, 186 volunteers participated in the reading clubs at Gratts and Magnolia. That's a new record, people! And it is just in time for our expansion to a third school, Esperanza Elementary, next month. We will be needing even more of you next month, so please submit your RSVP today. October's theme is, of course, "Halloween."

New Group: EIF Genesis

We had a large number of volunteers from a newly participating group, Entertainment Industry Foundation Genesis. Thanks for the great turnout!

One of their members, Sarah Warda, conducted a site visit on behalf of the Entertainment Industry Foundation. We enjoyed showing her around, and she is excited to volunteer with us. EIF will be letting us know if we will receive a grant from them within a few weeks.

Annual Fund Drive Off to a Great Start

So far we have raised just over $3,000, so we are about one fourth of the way to our goal of $12,500. I know we can do it!

Did you know that there are over 900 of you subscribed to our update e-mails? If each of you gave just $10 (roughly three caf? lattes), we would raise over $9,000!!! It really is true that every little bit makes a difference.
