The COVID19 pandemic has forced schools to temporarily close which has made it important more so now than ever to encourage kids to read and learn at home. In order to address this important issue, the NCAA has teamed up with the Fort Worth ISD, Read Fort Worth, Scholastic and the Fort Worth Sports Commission to create educational content and to provide books for local kids – but we need your help.
Currently, more than 25,000 FWISD kids are receiving meals Monday – Friday at __ different locations across the City. Our goal is to provide each of these kids with a new book to read each week when they receive their meal. You can help buy books for this program by clicking on the ‘DONATE NOW’ link below and choosing FWISD in the drop down menu. 100% of your donation will go toward the acquisition of books and for every $__ you donate it will secure 20 books for local kids.
Thank you for your time and consideration for this important initiative. Reading and education is so important to a young person’s development into their full potential and your support will help make sure Fort Worth’s future leaders are geared for success. Thank you -
