Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Our September 12th reading clubs are filling up nicely, though we still have spots available. Please sign up and join us!

We can also use New and Returning Volunteer trainers and Volunteer Check-In helpers on the 12th. If you have volunteered with us before and can step into these roles, please e-mail info@readingtokids.org.

If you signed up for the reading clubs but can't join us, please cancel your RSVP so that another volunteer can read with us!



Hi, Reading to Kids!

Next week leads up to the 9/12 reading clubs, and we can use your help to 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 next week (specific times still to be determined).

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 info@readingtokids.org or call (310) 479-7455.



Back to School Fun with Reading to Kids

Thanks to a couple of generous volunteers last week we are closer to having the school supplies we want to give away at the September 12th reading clubs. Here are the supplies we still need:

  • 90 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?

Please email us at info@readingtokids.org or call us at (310) 479-7455 if you have any supplies to donate.
