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
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
firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help us create wonderful reading clubs!
HELP US FIND GRANTS!
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
You may help us buy thousands of books for kids!
Thanks, and we share our appreciation to all our veterans this Memorial Day weekend.
