Read With Reed 83

“My reading program called READ 83 has really taken off and will support Boys & Girls Clubs in NFL cities,” Reed said. “I was a Club kid who made it into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Now I represent what they stand for and I know that through reading, every child can do the same. Reading is a way out!”

 

The program is part of Reed’s Andre Reed Foundation, which was established in 2010 with the goal of helping underprivileged children reach their full potential. Read with Reed 83 uses football to encourage children to read for 30 minutes a day. Local MVP readers – who read over 100 books in less than a month – had the opportunity to attend a Chargers game against the Buffalo Bills as Reed’s VIP guests, meeting some of the players on the field.

 

I am raising money to give 400 Books to the Boys and Girls Club in:

- Buffalo, NY (100 Books for 100 Children). 

- Brooklyn, NY (100 Books for 100 Children). 

- Cleveland, OH (100 Books for 100 Children). 

- San Diego, CA (100 Books for 100 Children). 

 The cost to deliver a book to a child cost $10.

 

“Reading is tied to graduation rates and, ultimately, success rates, especially in inner cities where I plan to do my literacy programming,” Reed added. “It’s my new legacy, and my commitment to kids, to make reading cool again by incorporating pro athletes and the game of football into the program.”
