About the Fight for Literacy

Starting in 2013, teams Fight for Literacy by hosting a Fight for Literacy Game presented by International Paper during their season. Coaching staff and athletes wear #Green4Literacy and call their fans to join the #Fight: raise awareness and funds to support literacy programs in their community. We’re proud to have so many #ChampionsofLiteracy working to provide opportunity through reading to young readers.

Since then, we've been able to donate over $1 million to support our #ChampionsofLiteracy across the nation. We are proud to partner with such wonderful institutions that are helping us create more and more #ChampionsofLiteracy so that we can solve the problem of illiteracy in their communities.
