It’s important for us here at The Ruby LA to do something that makes the world a better place. In December we supported the Girls on the Run 5k Run. And in February we’ve got another great volunteer event planned (find out more below). This Monday is Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day a holiday that many people spend honoring Dr. King’s name through volunteer service. Are you participating in any events? Do you regularly volunteer with a group? Let us know! We love to know how you Rubies are giving back!
Well Reading to Kids Needs You! 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, to a more successful education, and to a brighter future.
We are getting a volunteer group together to read to kids on Saturday February 9th from 9 am – 12 p at MacArthur Elementary School. If you’d love to be a Good Person, and read to kids, sign up at the button below! We’re looking for 10-15 people and sign ups go fast, so please get your sign up done by Friday January 18th @ noon!
