MAY 14TH READING CLUBS ON ZOOM,
RSVPS TO OPEN NEXT WEEK

We are eager for next month's virtual reading clubs on May 14th, but first need to recruit enough teachers to be Zoom hosts for them.

As soon as we confirm enough teacher hosts, you can then submit your RSVP for those always popular "Fantasy, Folklore, & Fairytales" reading clubs!

(We are also working with the LAUSD about when we may be able to return to in-person reading clubs on their campuses.)

THANK YOU CAPITAL GROUP!

We are so excited to thank The Capital Group Companies Charitable Foundation for a very generous $20,000 grant!

For 18 years The Capital Group Companies Charitable Foundation has supported us with grants that have helped sustain and grow our mission of inspiring underserved children with a love of reading, thereby enriching their lives and opportunities for future success. Just during the pandemic alone they have granted us $45,000!

We were able to earn this year's $20,000 grant because Capital Group Companies employee and Reading to Kids Taskforce Member Dalet Brady serves on our Curriculum Committee. Thank you, Dalet, for your own 18 years of support and service to the children of our partner schools!

Thanks, and we hope to see you soon at any of the above events!
