WHO YOU ARE HELPING
Did you know that 66% of fourth-graders are reading below grade level? That year is so important because children LEARN TO READ until 3rd grade and after that they READ TO LEARN.
100% of your donation to a #Fight4Literacy Game presented by International Paper can provide books, resources and tutoring support for students in the home team’s market. Through this partnership, International Paper has committed $200,000 to support literacy efforts, with match challenges up to $5k in particular markets.
Let’s get off the sideline and #Fight4Literacy! Make your donation today!
