Support the Redskins Read Book Drive Sunday!

09.17.2013 / Blog Posts Community Events

Coming out to watch the Redskins battle the Lions at FedExField this Sunday? Be on the lookout for donation bins located at stadium entrances on Sunday, September 22, 2013. The Redskins Charitable Foundation is hosting the NRG Redskins Read Book Drive to collect new or gently used children's books for EverybodyWins! DC.

EverybodyWins! DC is a non-profit organization devoted to promoting children's literacy and a love of learning by pairing students with reading mentors and placing new books in the hands of low-income students in Washington, D.C.

The Redskins Read initiative, powered by NRG, promotes youth literacy by challenging local elementary school students to read 10 or more books each school year.

This year, NRG will donate a total of $50,000 to the Redskins in support of this cause. The check will be presented to Mrs. Tanya Snyder on behalf of the Redskins Charitable Foundation at halftime during the game on September 22, 2013. 

If you are attending the WOW Pre-game party, we will also have a donation bin at the event to support the cause! 

Coming to the WOW pregame party? - We'll have a special donation box for monetary donations!
