Actors Day in LA – Actor Tony Franchitto with SAG PALS Reading Program reads to kids in L.A. schools

The SAG Foundation cordially invites you to participate in two rewarding projects that make perfect use of your talents as actors and expressive readers: reading and writing to elementary school students.

BookPALS is the SAG Foundation’s core literacy program. BookPALS read at elementary schools near their home on a weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly basis, as their schedules allow.

Our mission is to stimulate children’s interest in reading and encourage them to read on their own; to awaken young imaginations; to enrich vocabularies and open the doors to a broader, richer landscape; to help children visualize and see themselves in other realities; and to inspire and motivate children to communicate and to listen.

Founded in 1985, the Screen Actors Guild Foundation is an educational, humanitarian and philanthropic 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
