Reading to Kids Thanks The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation!

The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation has continued its generous support of Reading to Kids with a recent pledge of $15,000 to support our Reading Clubs!  The foundation "strives to support and facilitate the work of the region's best nonprofit organizations, recognizing that many of those in need today will go on to shape the future of Southern California, to define it, redefine it, and help it set and achieve new goals."  For more information about this wonderful community partner, please click here!

Thanks to you, our outstanding donors and volunteers, for making Reading to Kids one of "the region's best" grassroots organizations.  We are so lucky to have the kind of outstanding community support we do: people are consistently amazed to hear about what kind of movement you've worked to create.  Thanks!
