If you want to read to small groups of kids over the summer (June 18th-August 8th) at a city of Richmond summer camp (Camp Achieve), please sign up here.
We’ll be at Nevin Community Center & Verde Elementary (summer location of Shields-Reid Community Center) on Tuesdays, and Booker T. Anderson Community Center & Parchester Community Center on Fridays.
This program is made possible through sponsorships from the City of Richmond’s Community Services Department, the West Contra Cost Ed Fund and with book support from West County Reads. Thank You!
Our number crunching is over, and we have posted our Annual Review and uploaded the briefer Snapshot for the 2017-18 program year. Enjoy perusing!
Through Nov 2, AmazonSmile is donating 5% (ten times the usual amount) to Read-Aloud Volunteer Program when you shop at smile.amazon.com/ch/91-1839165. #AmazonSmile #StartWithaSmile
The Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley has been a long time supporter of Read-Aloud, and in September, we received the Good Neighbor offering, for the third year in a row!
On top of the donations, we also hosted our two large annual orientations at the church, at no cost, in September.
We asked a Read-Aloud Volunteer who is also a member of the church to present Rev. Schmidt with a Certificate of Appreciation for all the support that UUCB has given us over the years.
Orientations are scheduled for either :
Thursday, Sept. 6 2:30-4:30 pm or Tuesday, Sept. 25 10:30 am -12:30 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Berkeley, 1 Lawson Rd., Kensington 94707
There will be monthly make-up orientations thereafter at the Read-Aloud office. The first one is on Wednesday, Oct. 3, 10-noon.
We have posted our 2016-17 Annual Review (see here)! Data is still being collected for this program year; we hope to have the review up by September.
Thank you to all the volunteers and donors who made this year possible! We are holding small school site celebrations, you are welcome to attend any (though please RSVP to the coordinator or the office so we may get a head count).
