Coaching for Literacy awards grant

3 kids reading

By Stephanie Skordas, Director of Marketing & Communications

Teaming with the North Carolina A&T State University men’s and women’s basketball teams, Coaching for Literacy has awarded Ready Ready a grant as part of its #Fight4Literacy initiative.

It’s a movement of coaches, teams, influencers, and businesses to promote childhood reading.

Funds are raised through social media, donations, and businesses donating a portion of their sales to the effort. Ready Ready will use the grant to expand our early literacy efforts.

In addition to the grant, Coaching for Literacy has worked with NC A&T to record videos of track and field athletes reading stories. The storytime videos will be shared with local child care centers in Guilford County.
