Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

The members of USC Medical, Education Missions & Outreach (MEMO) are back with another read-aloud video for the kids to enjoy while at home!

Charlotte's Web video image

Click on the image above to hear them read aloud the first seven chapters of the beloved classic Charlotte's Web!

We have also added their video to our list of activities and read-aloud videos for kids that we began creating almost exactly a year ago today!



Our partner school teachers are on their Spring Break all next week, and they are continuing to confirm as Zoom hosts for next month's virtual reading clubs on April 10th!

Next week when we confirm enough teacher hosts, we will then open our RSVP system at for those "Amazing Animals" reading clubs on Zoom!


Volunteers checking in with their Site Coordinators on Zoom

For our virtual reading clubs we need experienced volunteers to help train volunteers to use Zoom or be a second or third virtual Site Coordinator in our Zoom reading clubs for any of our schools.

Being a Site Coordinator guarantees you a (non-reading) spot at our next reading clubs, so please e-mail us at if you can help us create wonderful reading clubs!


Reading to Kids' Legendary Bingo fundraiser

Our next Virtual Legendary Bingo on Zoom fundraiser will take place in about five or six weeks, and we need your help gathering prizes for the bingo winners!

To help you get started, here is information about Reading to Kids to share with potential donors, as well as a donation form for them to complete.

We especially enjoy awarding gift certificates, gift bags, and autographed items! Anything unique is great, too!

If you work at or have a connection with products or services to offer, please help us by asking for a donation to our events.


Jessica Brown-Clark with Target grant check

Did you know Reading to Kids receives about half of our funding from corporation and foundation grants? For example, over the last five years alone six of our volunteers helped us receive $140,000 in grants from their employers!

Please check to see if your employer offers grants that Reading to Kids can apply to and let us know! You may help us buy thousands of books for kids!


Thanks, and once enough teachers are confirmed next week we will open our RSVP system for our next reading clubs (always the second Saturday of each month) on April 10th.
