Thank You November Readers!

UCLA volunteers at the Annual College Spirit Day

Thank you November Readers!

Thanks to all the 521 volunteers who came out to read to the 1,124 students at our "Sports, Games and Fun" reading clubs. Also, thanks to all who supported our Annual College Spirit Day by wearing college gear! Among the 62 schools represented, UCLA led all schools with 95 participants. Congrats UCLA grads! Other top schools were:

CSU-Long Beach - 31
USC - 22
Stanford - 19
Michigan - 10

Here is what some of the volunteers are saying ...

"Spending one morning a month reading with these kids is an easy way I can make a difference - in my life as well as theirs!"
-Kristen Stancik, Hoover Volunteer

"... They got so into the book and the games that we played and the arts and crafts that by the end, they were all laughing and talking and having a good time."
-Michelle Keh, Hoover Volunteer

"Keep it up. I'm glad a program like this exists."
-Michael Eiff, Alta Loma Volunteer

Our next reading clubs will be Saturday, December 13th. Make sure to sign up TODAY for December's reading clubs at!
