Basketball & Literacy

The Wade’s World Foundation has adopted literacy as one of it’s core focus areas. As a result, WWF provides continued support to community based organizations focusing on literacy. Through "Reading Takes You Far" and partnership with By The Hands Club For Kids, a Chicago based organization dedicated to “helping inner city kids discover abundant life, and Hachette Book Group, 18,000 books (1,000 per point scored by Dwyane) were donated to Miami-Dade and Chicago Public school libraries during a 2013 Miami Heat vs Chicago Bulls game. Additionally, Dwyane and Best-Selling author James Patterson have teamed up numerous times for a series of “One on One” discussions about their love for books and the impact reading can have on your life!
