A local business is doing big things to help Reading to Kids!  Salon owner Irene Vaksberg has a history of supporting charitable causes, and she is teaming up with Reading to Kids for a month long book drive at her salon! 

From June 5th to July 6th, she will offer a complimentary haircut ($75 value) OR conditioning treatment to anyone who brings in 3 or more new children's books for Reading to Kids.  The Vaksberg Salon is located within LaPeer Beauty at 8950 West Olympic Blvd.  For an appointment, call (310) 993-8600.  

This is the second book drive Irene Vaksberg has held for Reading to Kids.  In 2005, she collected nearly 400 books in a similar effort.

If you are looking for an excuse to get a new do, give Irene a call!  If you go to the salon, make sure to say thanks!
