Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
We have two urgent needs for our very popular October 14th Halloween, Magic, & Monsters reading clubs!
FIVE MORE MAGICIANS NEEDED!
The kids always enjoy seeing live magic at our October reading clubs, and we are looking for five more
magicians to perform at our eight schools.
If you or someone you know possesses the powers of magic and illusion, please contact us at
firstname.lastname@example.org or (310) 479-7455!
175 MORE VOLUNTEER READERS NEEDED!
These October 14th reading clubs will be our largest so far this year, so please help recruit the 175 more readers we'll need!
Volunteers must be vaccinated against COVID-19 and are encouraged to wear a mask while indoors on campus. The kids are also encouraged to wear masks while indoors.
To get started, sign up today, then email us at
email@example.com at if you can also
help train new and returning volunteers, be a GLC, or be a second or third Site Coordinator .
If you join our
October 14th Facebook Event your friends will see you'll be attending.
Please also print out this flyer and post it in heavily populated locations such as coffee shops, the gym, your office or other various community centers. Make it a personal and fun social event by including the school at which you'll be reading.
You can also use this
easy message template to reach out to your friends and co-workers.

This is our 10th time running the marathon, and we're looking for at least three more marathon runners and six Charity Challenge runners (the last 13.1 miles of the course) to join us in one of the best marathons in the country.

pick some up at back-to-school sales), these are the
specific items we are looking for:
Colorful 2-pocket folders
3-ring pencil pouches
Stores such as Office Depot, Staples, and Target are still promoting
great back-to-school specials. If you're going to be there
anyway, why not pick up a folder or ten for the kids?

have any supplies to donate. September is always a fun month for us,
made much more so with the giveaways!
