Taj Gibson and Lindsey Hunter host reading time-out at local elementary school
November 13, 2009 – As part of the Chicago Bulls’ Read To Achieve program, Bulls forward Taj Gibson and guard Lindsey Hunter celebrated reading with 25 third grade students from St. Margaret of Scotland School on Friday afternoon.
Beginning at 3 p.m., Gibson read out loud from “If Kids Ruled the School” by Bruce Lansky. Following the reading, Gibson and Hunter gave each student a copy of the book along with a t-shirt, book bag and school supplies kit.
The Bulls, Rush University Medical Center and ComEd coordinated the event as part of the Bulls’ ongoing Read To Achieve program, which inspires literacy among Chicago’s youth by encouraging families and adults to read regularly with young children. As part of its annual commitment, the Bulls host Reading Time-Outs with local children, distribute more than 5,000 new books and organize literacy activities. Rush University Medical Center and ComEd are partners of the program.
