**International Paper is matching gifts up to $5,000!**
Oregon Men’s Basketball is partnering with Champions for Literacy to host a Fight for Literacy Game (presented by International Paper) to benefit SMART Reading by providing critical literacy resources.
Together, these Champions for Literacy are making sure every child is resourced and inspired to become a strong reader. Reading on grade level by the end of 3rd grade is a powerful and proven indicator that children will graduate high school and be college or career-ready. Join us by becoming a Champion for Literacy and donating to the cause!
BECOME A CHAMPION TODAY! - HOW YOU CAN HELP
100% of donations will stay local with SMART Reading to purchase new books for students to select to keep and to recruit, train, and support volunteers who engage the students in shared reading time weekly.
