Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
Happy February! Are you keeping up with your New Year's resolution to spend more time volunteering?
Reading to Kids is here every month to support your efforts to give back to our community. Our "Friendship & Family" reading clubs are
next Saturday, February 13th. We still need 57 more volunteers, so
sign up today, then invite your friends and family to read with you via
13th Facebook event!
CAN'T RUN 26 MILES?
THEN DONATE TO SUPPORT OUR MARATHON RUNNERS!
Reading to Kids as they run the Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon on
February 14th (Valentine's Day)!
Over the next 11 days they need your help to raise $5,700 more towards their overall goal of
$13,600. If you can donate a buck a mile
to your favorite runner, you'll help fuel them towards the finish line!
With every mile they train and every dollar they raise, these valiant souls help you inspire kids with a love of reading.
BE A SCHOOL AMBASSADOR
Next week for an hour or two between 7:30am and 2:30pm, we need your
help conducting quick classroom walk-throughs to encourage kids to come to
our February 13th reading clubs.
Please reply to inforeadingtokids.org or call the office
at (310) 479-7455 if you can be an Ambassador.
