JUNE 12TH READING CLUBS RSVPS
TO OPEN NEXT THURSDAY, JUNE 3RD

We have already recruited 23 Zoom teacher hosts for next month's virtual reading clubs on June 12th!

Next Thursday, June 3rd, at about 11am we will open the RSVPs at www.readingtokids.org for those "Friendship & Fun" reading clubs!

Our summer reading clubs are also smaller, so mark your calendars for July 10th and August 14th, too. Help us keep students reading throughout the summer!

OPERATIONS VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

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 info@readingtokids.org if you can help us create wonderful reading clubs!

HELP US FIND GRANTS!

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 eight of our volunteers helped us receive $160,000 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 at info@readingtokids.org! You may help us buy thousands of books for kids!
