What a great Reading Club!

Our College Spirit Day Reading Clubs were incredible: we had 262 volunteers and 840 kids in attendance! For a list of last month's volunteers, please click here.

To sign up for the December 11th Reading Clubs, please click here. Our December Clubs are bound to be a lot of fun, as we're planning visits by Santa, a computer raffle, and lots of great holiday crafts. Sign up early to make sure you reserve yourself a spot!

And, thanks to all the generous volunteers and R2K fans who gave during our 2004 Annual Fund Drive. We will be tabulating the Fund Drive results within the next few days and will announce the results as soon as possible! Thanks again for all your help!



College Spirit Day!

Despite a valiant effort by the Trojans, and in particular longtime partner USC Alpha Phi Omega, UCLA beat USC for the second year running at the Annual College Spirit Day Reading Clubs! There were 56 UCLA fans and 29 USC fans at the events, in addition to scores of other volunteers who wore their school finery and got our kids excited about going to college. We even spotted a University of Geneva fan!

The event had excellent press coverage, thanks to the hard work of our Marketing Committee. Please check out the Daily Bruin article by clicking here and the Daily Trojan article by clicking here.

Special thanks to the Bruincorps crew, to the Bruin Belles, and to the Alpha Phi Omega groups from all over Southern California - as far away as San Diego! - for their outstanding participation and recruitment for this event.



Office Support!

Reading to Kids is seeking office support from interns and volunteers. If you are a college student (or you know one!) who might be interested in our internship program, please click here.

If you are a volunteer seeking an ongoing opportunity to help out with Reading to Kids, we would love to have you volunteer in our office in West Los Angeles. We are seeking part-time volunteers to help with administrative duties for 2-20 hours per week. Please contact Maryanna Abdo at (310) 479-7455 if you are interested in learning more about how you can help.

Best,
