Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,

Our July 13th reading clubs are 10 days away and are probably already full, though please keep checking our website this week and next week for any recent cancellations!

(If you signed up for the reading clubs but can't join us, please cancel your RSVP now so that another volunteer can read with us.)

We especially need more of our experienced volunteers to help as Training Coordinators, Check-In Helpers, & Site Operations Helpers.

You can read about those roles here and email info@readingtokids.org if you want to help in any, even if your school is full!

These July reading clubs are a little smaller because the schools are in the middle of their summer break.

Or, if you want to help in other ways (Curriculum, Marketing, etc.), and have volunteered with us three or more times, consider joining our Taskforce.



At our August reading clubs we would love to give away a computer or iPad/tablet to one lucky kid at each school.

If you or your employer have any working computers that are less than 6 years old running Windows 8 or later, or any Macintosh computers less than 7 years old, or any iPads or similar tablets, we can give them to deserving kids!

We especially need working computers (CPUs), whether or not they come with monitors, keyboards, etc. Please email us at info@readingtokids.org to help make a kid very happy!

Reading to Kids' Legendary Bingo fundraiser at Hamburger Mary's in West Hollywood

Our next Legendary Bingo fundraiser at Hamburger Mary's in West Hollywood will be on October 23rd, and we need your help gathering more prizes for auctions and bingo winners that night!

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, amusement park and theater tickets, 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.

You may have gift cards you haven't used which would make excellent prizes if you'd like to donate them to us! E-mail us at info@readingtokids.org to arrange mailing them to us!


Thanks, and we wish you a wonderful and safe Fourth of July!
