Hi Santa Monica Socials,

Let's get together on Saturday morning from 9am-12pm and participate in the Reading to Kids program and then there is a Lunch Social afterwards at El Cholo with all the volunteers from the other schools as well and free appetizers are provided.

**Reading to Kids is dedicated to inspiring undeserved children with a love of reading. 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, to a more successful education, and to a brighter future.**

To sign up to volunteer, please visit:

1) There will be a box for you to enter your email address, then click Submit.

2) There will be a link for "Proceed to Online Application". The application is only 1 page and takes 5 minutes to fill out. It just asks occupation, company, schools, attended, and asks for 2 references.

3) Next, click on "Continue by selecting school". We will be volunteering at MAGNOLIA ELEMENTARY SCHOOL and click on "SANTA MONICA SOCIAL" from the dropdown box.

**Application takes 1-2 days for approval so please submit in advance before the event.**

Space is limited and fills up fast! Looking forward to seeing some returning volunteers and hopefully some new ones :-)
