The LA Kings - and yes, that includes mascot Bailey are Reading Is Fundamental of Southern California’s newest partner! Encouraging our children to read for FUN outside of the classroom will be easier than ever we incorporate Bailey’s LA Kings Royal Readers and LA Kings Book Drives into our program. LA Kings fans - BRAVO to you all - donated over 400 new and gently used books at the February 18th and 25th Kings games. The Kings’ mascot Bailey, the Ice Crew, and representatives from the LA Kings Community Relations Department recently brought the books, LA Kings stickers, shirts, backpacks and energy, to two RIFSoCal sites, creating major bedlam as they walked in the door! Children at Maryvale and Beverly WIC will never forget the excitement of the afternoon or the personally delivered message to read, read, read.
A heartfelt thank you to the LA Kings for believing in the future of our children and for sponsoring RIFSoCal’s 2012-2013 bookmarks and bookplates!
