Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Our Amazing Animals & Interesting Environments reading clubs are creeping up quickly on April 9th! Please sign up today to join us for a morning of reading.

We still need 236 volunteers to read to hundreds of excited kids, so spread the word amongst your family, friends, and co-workers by joining our April 9th Facebook event!

WHAT WE NEED AT OUR NEW 8TH SCHOOL

Last week we announced that at our April 9th reading clubs we will begin reading at MacArthur Park Elementary!

We're putting together the craft supplies for our new school, and we can really use donations of glue sticks, bottles of glue, and child scissors.

We also need a toaster for bagels and a coffee pot that can brew at least 20 cups of coffee at a time. If you can donate any of the above, please let us know at info@readingtokids.org!

Help inspire students at MacArthur Park with a love of reading by signing up to volunteer for this momentous occasion! This is your chance to be at a first reading club at one of our schools!

Specifically, we are looking for Site Coordinators, Training Coordinators, GLCs, a Bagel Runner and/or Food Runner, and experienced volunteers to start at MacArthur Park. If you are interested in getting more involved, please contact us at info@readingtokids.org.

We are also looking for more Site Coordinators at our other schools, too! If you want to step into this important role, please contact us at info@readingtokids.org.

THANK YOU TO THE GREEN FOUNDATION

We are very excited to thank The Green Foundation for their $15,000 grant!

For the third time since 2012 The Green Foundation's generous support will help all of us share your love of reading with thousands of children looking to be inspired. We are deeply thankful for their support and look forward to many happy reading clubs!

KNOW SOMEONE FAMOUS? COMEDIANS AND CELEBRITIES WANTED

If you personally know or have a solid connection to a well-known, headliner comedian who would be interested and available in performing for a Comedy Night fundraiser for us this year, please email us at info@readingtokids.org.

We'd also like to have a celebrity host for either our Comedy Night or as a bingo caller for our annual Legendary Bingo Nights on June 1st or October 19th. Please email us at info@readingtokids.org if you can personally reach out to any celebrities who would like to help your favorite good cause!
