October Reading Clubs Were a Howling Success!

The October reading clubs were a huge success, with over 180 volunteers reading Halloween-themed books to 550 children. In addition, reading clubs were held at Esperanza Elementary School, marking the first time that Reading to Kids has run the clubs at three schools simultaneously. Thanks to the teachers, staff, and operations coordinators who supported the effort! Click here for a complete list of volunteer participants.

In addition, for the second month in a row, Reading to Kids volunteers gathered for a post-reading club lunch at the lounge of the El Cholo Restaurant. Please click here for more details, and please join us there at the conclusion of the next reading clubs!

Thanks Pacific Life Foundation!

We learned this week that we will receive a 2003 Pacific Life Foundation grant of $5,000! They gave us a $5,000 2002 grant, and we are delighted to partner with them again to continue to bring the joy of reading to the kids we serve.
