East High School Mustangs #Fight4Literacy

Get off the sideline and #Fight4Literacy!

Sometimes we can all use an assist, whether it’s on the court or in real life. Join the East High Mustangs, Coaching for Literacy, and International Paper to provide an assist to kids learning to read. Together, we are combatting the statistic that just 1 in 3 American fourth graders are reading on grade level. That year is so important because children LEARN TO READ until third grade and after that they READ TO LEARN.


100% of donations will be granted to support literacy efforts in Memphis! These funds will be used to provide books, resources and tutoring for local students. Expand opportunities by making your donation today. Click DONATE on the top right of this page. $10 can provide 2 books to a child! 

Where else is the #Fight4Literacy this season? Check out our other participating schools here.

About Coaching for Literacy

Founded in 2013 by two high school students, Coaching for Literacy aims to raise awareness of and support solutions to the widespread problem of illiteracy. Using the power and influence of sports, the organization partners with teams across the country to host Fight for Literacy Games, which raise funds for grants to literacy-focused programs in their communities. Coaching for Literacy operates on the core belief that literacy is a fundamental right of every individual. Learn more at coachingforliteracy.org.
