HELP US LAUNCH OUR NEW 8TH SCHOOL!
One reason we need so many more volunteers is because 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
BINGO PRIZE CHALLENGE
Our next Legendary Bingo fundraiser at
Hamburger Mary's in West Hollywood is set for
June 1st, and we need your help gathering prizes for the bingo winners!
We're hoping for gift certificates, amusement park and theater tickets, gift bags, autographed items - anything that would be fun to win at bingo!
