Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
Thanks to everyone who came out to volunteer at our College Spirit Day reading clubs on Saturday! 1,091 kids, 181 parents, and 474 volunteers joined us for a morning of reading fun.
UCLA WINS WITH THE MOST COLLEGE SPIRIT
With more than 65 colleges represented on Saturday, the College Spirit Day Competition was intense! The Bruins took the title back from USC with 69 volunteers attending! Stanford had the most statewide representation with 21 volunteers, while Vanderbilt University pulled together the most out-of-state support with 10 volunteers!
Thank you to all the volunteers who showed up in their college attire to help get our kids excited about going to college!
