Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
This Saturday 454 volunteers helped us welcome 1,016 kids,
169 parents, and 28 teachers & staff back to school! We especially thank the
Junior League of Los Angeles for bringing 97 volunteers!
Submit your RSVP here for our "Halloween, Magic, and Monsters" reading clubs on October 10th.
We will have magicians performing at each of our seven schools, and encourage all volunteers to dress up in school-appropriate Halloween costumes!
Our October reading clubs are even more popular than September, so sign up
now and tell your coworkers, family and friends
about your favorite volunteer opportunity! To help with that, after you sign up,
please join our October 10th Facebook event, too.
