Team up with the Wildcats and become a Champion for Literacy!
Northwestern Men’s Basketball is partnering with Champions for Literacy to host a Fight for Literacy Game (presented by International Paper) to benefit local Aurora students at Longwood Elementary and Georgetown Elementary.
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 and career-ready in the future.
BECOME A CHAMPION TODAY! - HOW YOU CAN HELP
100% of donations will stay local and benefit students needing an extra literacy assist at Longwood Elementary School and Georgetown Elementary School
As the presenting sponsor, International Paper is donating $10,000 to be split between the two schools. Join them in championing the cause!
