Reading to Kids - Holiday Volunteer Opportunity

reading-to-kids

 The Cornell Club of Los Angeles will be having a holiday volunteer event at Reading to Kids on December 9th from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon.  The theme is "Family & the Spirit of Giving." 

Reading to Kids is dedicated to inspiring underserved children with a love of reading. They coordinate reading clubs at elementary schools in downtown Los Angeles where volunteers read aloud to children and create arts and crafts projects about the stories. Each child receives a book to take home, and the books read aloud are donated to the school's library. Reading aloud to children imparts a love of books that leads to improved literacy,  a more successful education and a brighter future.
