Each clinic will host 250 children ranging from ages 6 to 14. Participants will receive lunch, t-shirts, gift bags and books courtesy of the Clippers Read to Achieve Program. Children registered in the City of Los Angeles Department of Recreation & Parks’ day camp program at each site will be participating as well as children from the local community through phone-in registration.
