Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Labor Day is this weekend, and this year we follow it with another fun-filled Saturday of reading clubs! We still have 113 spaces left, and we need your help to fill them up!

Sign up today and join us as we explore "Faraway Places" at the September 8th Reading Clubs.

INTRODUCING KATHERINE NORRIS, OUR AMERICORPS VIP FELLOW AND LITERACY COORDINATOR

It is our pleasure to announce that we have a new full-time person working with us in the Reading to Kids offices! Katherine Norris is serving a year with AmeriCorps as a VIP Fellow, and she is our new Literacy Coordinator. She will focus on increasing the quality of our volunteer experience, coordinating the monthly reading clubs, and volunteer recruitment.

Katherine graduated summa cum laude from Barnard College, Columbia University with a BA in Film Studies and a BA Minor in Psychology. She was recommended to us by KOREH L.A., our AmeriCorps supervisory organization, and she is very excited to be working with us.

Please introduce yourselves to Katherine as you meet her at the reading clubs, committee meetings, and our offices.

COMEDY NIGHT SILENT AUCTION ITEMS NEEDED

Our Comedy Night features a Silent Auction, with all proceeds benefiting Reading to Kids - and we can use more donated items!

In the past we have had gift certificates, products, services, and tickets to fun events. If you work at or have a connection with a restaurant, retail store, or for a company with products or services to offer, please help us by asking for a donation to our Silent Auction. We are always looking for fun, inventive items to include in our Silent Auction.

Please see the Want to help? area of our brand new Comedy Night and Silent Auction page for links to a donation letter, donation form, and tips on how to best approach a business or person to donate to our Silent Auction.  We thank you in advance!
