A message from United Way Board:
Ranked 3 of 6 fundraisers - $1,125 raised by 11 supporters
Would like to encourage our United Way board members to participate in this fun event raising matching dollars to fund literacy programming in our community. Let's try to get 100% participation to show support for the cause.
Sometimes we can all use an assist, whether it’s on the court or in real life. Join the Shockers Coaching for Literacy and International Paper to provide an assist to kids learning to read. 100% of donations will be granted to United Way of the Plains to support literacy efforts in Wichita! These funds will be used to provide books, resources, and tutoring for local students.

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.
This campaign will support United Way of the Plains.
Let’s get off the sideline and #Fight4Literacy! Make your donation today!
