Hall of Famer and former Buffalo Bills wide receiver, Andre Reed, along with other local Falcons players, will be hosting a literacy rally at the Jones Boys & Girls Club in Decatur, Georgia during Super Bowl week. This event will take place on Wednesday, January 30th, 2019. The Andre Reed Foundation was started in 2010 and aims to help underprivileged children reach their full potential and become responsible contributors to their communities. Within the foundation, Reed created the Read with Reed 83 program in an effort to promote the benefits of reading. The 2019 Super SIZED Read with Reed 83 literacy rally will encourage 200 children “how to tackle a good book and catch the LOVE of reading.” Read 83 will be proving the Boys & Girls club a reading tent, books, and more, creating an enjoyable place to read at the club for years to come. Each child will be encouraged to engage in reading for at least 30 minutes a day and leave the rally knowing they have the power to pick up a book, leaving a strong academic impact on the extraordinary Club youth in Atlanta.
