Help us write our next chapter by making your contribution to Reading to Kids' 2013 Annual Fund Drive!
Each year, from the October to the December reading clubs, we ask our supporters to help us inspire underserved children with a love of reading by making a donation to Reading to Kids.
Reading to Kids has been able to thrive thanks to the thousands of hours of participation by teachers, administrators, parents, volunteers, and elementary school children (click here for program statistics) and thanks to generous financial contributions by foundations, businesses, agencies, and individuals like you.
In May 1999, Reading to Kids held its first reading club with 20 students and 8 volunteers at Gratts Elementary School. Fifteen years later, on average, 338 Reading to Kids volunteers read to 813 children each month at seven elementary schools!
Kids emerge from our program with more enthusiasm for reading, books for their home library, stronger school libraries, personal relationships with volunteers, and changed attitudes for reading in English!
In order to sustain and expand our program, we need your help! Your donation will help to purchase hardcover books for elementary school libraries in low-income communities, fund book donations directly to children and parents to help them develop their own home libraries, and expand our program into new schools and communities.
Please join us by making a donation to Reading to Kids.
If you have any questions regarding the Annual Fund Drive, please feel free to contact Charlie Orchard at the Reading to Kids office at (310) 479-7455 or by email at Charlie.Orchard @ readingtokids.org.
Thank you for your support!
