Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
We are a mere 9 days away from our September 13th "Back to School Fun" reading clubs, and we need another
122 volunteer readers! We'll be giving away school supplies to the kids, too!
Here are 5 easy things you can do right now to help recruit volunteers!

website now and sign up.
September 13th Facebook Event to let your friends know the fun you'll be up to that morning!
Post on your
Twitter/Facebook/Instagram/ etc. that

A really great organization I volunteer with, Reading to Kids, is looking for more volunteers for their September 13th reading clubs. It's my favorite volunteer opportunity in LA, and I hope you can join me. It's a fun filled morning of reading to elementary school kids near downtown LA. If you want to join me I'll be at ### Elementary School. Sign up online at www.readingtokids.org.
If you have people in mind who you think would really like to read with us, tag them in your post. It will alert them to the reading clubs and show up in their friends' news feeds.
Use our handy
email template (in PDF) to encourage people you know to sign up to read with us!
Print out this flyer and post it somewhere others will see it. Make it a personal and fun social event by including the school at which you'll be reading!
With your enthusiasm and support, together we can
make 1,200 kids happy on Sept. 13th!
If you're signed up but know you can't make it to the September
13th reading clubs, please be sure to cancel your RSVP as soon as you can.
SCHOOL AMBASSADORS NEEDED NEXT WEEK!
Next week leads up to the 9/13 reading clubs, and we can use your help to do the following at each school that week:
- Put up the
- Distribute teacher welcome letters
- Distribute Classroom Sign-In Posters
- Conduct quick classroom walk-throughs to encourage kids to come
to the reading clubs that Saturday
We'll supply everything you need, so we just need folk (ideally in pairs) who can go to a school or two that Monday morning or perhaps other days that week (specific times still to be determined).
This is a wonderful way to interact with the
kids and teachers! The more we publicize at the beginning of the school year, the more children and families we'll serve all year.
Please email us at inforeadingtokids.org or call the office if you can be an Ambassador next week.
OFFICE HELPERS AND INTERNS NEEDED
Looking for a new way to get involved with Reading to Kids?
Want to add volunteer office help to your resume? We currently
are looking for a few good
interns and volunteers to help us in the office on
weekdays on a regular basis.
There are tons of
things that need to be done in the office for every reading
club, as well as general office work. If you or someone you
trust is interested and available during weekdays,
email us at inforeadingtokids.org
