Thanks to all of you who have called or e-mailed us with words of condolences for Helga Hung's family. As we informed you last week, our dear friend Helga died in a car accident on her way home from the reading clubs in January. Helga's younger sisters Fannie and Judy are deeply appreciative of the outpouring of love and support from the Reading to Kids community. To learn more about Helga's spirit of volunteerism (or to add your own memory of Helga), please visit our tribute page:
Fannie and Judy will be joining us at the February Reading Clubs as we honor Helga. There will be more on that in the next couple of weeks.
New Program Director!
In the midst of the sad news about Helga last week, we do have some good news to report. On Tuesday, January 17th, Reading to Kids welcomed Jessica Tritsch on board as our new Program Director. Jessica comes to us from STAR Education, where she was working as a Development Officer. Prior to her work at STAR, she was the Organizing Director of CALPIRG, working closely with students on eight college campuses across California. Needless to say, her fundraising and volunteer recruitment skills fit perfectly with what we do at Reading to Kids. Welcome Jessica!
If you would like to volunteer with us in February, please sign up soon. Our reading clubs are filling up fast this month. Please click here to RSVP.
Thanks, and have a fun and safe weekend.
