Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
SCHOOL AMBASSADORS NEEDED NEXT WEEK!
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
firstname.lastname@example.org or call (310) 479-7455.
BACK-TO-SCHOOL SUPPLIES STILL NEEDED
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?
email us at email@example.com or call us at (310) 479-7455 if you have any supplies to donate.
