Former NFL player makes reading zone at the Boys and Girls club
CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Andre Reed brought in sticker decals and comfy bean bags to create a reading area for the children. He received help putting this together from some of the members of the Natrona High School football team.
Reed said he’s lucky to be able to give 14 reading zones across the United States--- and visit 65 total.
He says he loves to give back to the Boys and Girls Club because they are a safe environment and a great place to grow.
Reed based his foundation on reading because it was missing in his childhood.
“I love telling kids how important [reading] is because knowledge is power and we can’t do what we do without having an education,” Reed said.
Reed added he enjoyed his first trip to Wyoming.
