Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

August starts this Saturday, and on August 8th we're celebrating creativity at our "Arts & Entertainment" reading clubs! We'll have movie posters and other movie-related prizes to give away to each kid, as well as a refurbished computer to give to one lucky kid at each school!

All volunteer spots are currently full, but please continue to check our website for openings. If you are signed up but know you can't join us, cancel your RSVP so that someone else may take your place!



With the 2015-16 school year beginning soon, we will have many opportunities for you to help us promote the reading clubs at our partner schools as a Reading to Kids Ambassador.

You can help out at Kindergarten Orientations, Back-to-School-Nights, and with Teacher Breakfast Deliveries.

These events set the course for the rest of the school year and are a wonderful way to interact with the kids, parents, and teachers!

If you are interested in being an Ambassador, please email us at or call (310) 479-7455.


Reading to Kids is taking you out to the ball game! See the LA Dodgers play the Washington Nationals on Tuesday, August 11.

Tickets are $12 each; please e-mail Rachel Harter at to purchase. RSVP to our Facebook event here.
