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
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
