OUR "READ WITH THE GR8's!" TEAM
On Martin Luther King Day 2017, Dwight Howard and his foundation announced a partnership with Hands On Atlanta calling on for volunteers to join a new literacy team.
With help from Hands On Atlanta and the Atlanta Speech School, Dwight's D12 Foundation will recruit and equip community volunteers to read to under-served youth throughout the months of February, March and May.
In just one reading session each month at a local school, adult volunteers will help young readers “Be Gr8!” and explore literacy through books which address the social studies and science topics they’re learning about in school.
In addition to training and support from Hands On Atlanta, volunteers will receive a “Read with the Gr8's” shirt, free dining opportunities from Arby's, tickets for an upcoming Hawks game, and a chance to meet Dwight and receive his personal thanks!
