Memphis Men's and Women's Basketball is partnering with Champions for Literacy to host a Fight for Literacy Game (presented by International Paper) to benefit Knowledge Quest, Memphis Teacher Residency, and STREETS Ministries.
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 to provide books, resources, and tutoring to help Memphis children birth through third-grade students learn to read.
