Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
September is one of our biggest months, and the
September 12th reading clubs need you and your friends!
We need 153 more volunteers, so please join us and help recruit them!
To get started, sign up today. Then join our
September 12th Facebook event
so your friends will see that you will be attending.
Please also email and post on your
Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. that
we need more volunteers.
You can use this
easy email template to reach out to your friends,
family, and co-workers, but however you reach them, be sure
to tell them:
1) The reading clubs are the morning of September 12th near Downtown LA
2) Volunteers must sign up online at
3) The school at which you will be reading
Please also print out this flyer and post it in heavily populated locations such as coffee shops, the gym, your office or other various community centers. Make it a personal and fun social event by including the school at which you'll be reading.
BACK-TO-SCHOOL SUPPLIES NEEDED
We are once again excited to give away school supplies at the
September 12th reading clubs.
If you happen to have the following laying around (or want to
pick some up at back-to-school sales), these are the
specific items we are looking for:
100 more binder folders
100 3-ring binders and/or packages of filler paper
15 3-ring pencil pouches
Stores such as Office Depot, Staples and Target are promoting great
back-to-school specials. If you're going to be there anyway, why
not pick up a folder or ten?
email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (310) 479-7455 if you have any supplies to donate.
READING TO KIDS AMBASSADORS WANTED
OVER NEXT 2 WEEKS
It's the second week of school, which means during these next few weeks we are invited to promote Reading to
Kids at our partner schools' Back-to-School nights and through classroom walkthroughs!
We'll supply everything you need, including what to say. Although it's great if you can speak
Spanish, it is not necessary. All of our parent materials are
bilingual and there's always someone who can translate for you
at the school.
The kids delight in seeing our Ambassadors, often calling out "Reading to Kids!" when they see us!
If you can be an Ambassador, please
email us at
email@example.com or call (310) 479-7455.
