Clark Hill Cares Supports “Defending Literacy Tour” in Southeast Michigan
– Clark Hill PLC, through its community outreach Clark Hill Cares program, has partnered with Cumulus Media, the Stephanie Starks Hope Foundation, Young Cadillac of Owosso, and the Detroit Lions’ Titus Young to deliver more than 30,000 books to schoolchildren through Metro Detroit. The program is called the “Defending Literacy Tour,” and has selected Michigan as its target due to the 47% illiteracy rate in the city of Detroit.
“Some kids have never owned a book, so this will be a major gift to them,” Titus Young said.
The tour is organized by the Stephanie Starks Hope Foundation, which has been supplying free books – valued at more than $15 million dollars – to inner city kids for almost a decade. The charity is headquartered in Los Angeles, CA.
“With schools in Detroit and elsewhere scaling back and with so many kids deprived of even the basic tools for decent education, this is a great way to celebrate the holiday and give the gift of reading,” said Young.
Accompanied by his teammates, Young will lead the “Young Christmas Caravan” dressed as Santa Clause and deliver books to children at three locations in Metro Detroit. He will also host a read-a-long for the children, which includes each child taking home up to eight books.
The tour takes place the week of December 12 and will include stops to Ralph Bunche Academy in Detroit, Rogers Elementary in Pontiac, and Bryant Elementary in Owosso.
