THANK YOU WATER BUFFALO CLUB
We would like to thank the
Water Buffalo Club for its generous and ongoing support!
Over the next two years their recent $20,000 grant will go towards hardcover, read-aloud books
that we'll donate to our partner schools' libraries after
the reading clubs, and towards paperback prize books for children, their parents, and teachers!
This grant would not have been possible without the
support of Principal Brad Rumble at
Leo Politi Elementary School. Principal Rumble arranged for two wonderful Politi students to be part of our presentation
to the Water Buffalo Club, and they did a
fantastic job sharing how much Reading to Kids
means to them. Finally, a special thank you to Reading to Kids
volunteer Julie Stephens for representing
our dedicated volunteers during the presentation!
