Proceeds benefit Coaching for Literacy
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.
International Paper is doing something about it and teaming up with Coaching for Literacy in the #Fight4Literacy! Each of these 20 markets have the opportunity to raise money and awareness for literacy programs across the nation, and the best part, 100% of those donations STAY in their market! As the presenting sponsor of #Fight4Literacy, International Paper has committed $200,000 to support literacy efforts, with match challenge funding up to $5k in the following markets.
