In an effort to develop lifelong learners through literacy and education the Orlando Magic, Magic player Glen Davis and Magic Community Ambassador Bo Outlaw will build a “Healthy Minds Reading Corner” at Mt. Sinai Child Development Center (2610 Orange Center Blvd., Orlando, 32805) on Wednesday, November 14 from 3:30 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. The reading corner will have new furniture, Magic items and books donated by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. The corner is part of the Magic and Florida Blue Baskets for Books program.
For the third season, the Magic and Florida Blue have teamed up to develop lifelong learners through the Baskets for Books program. For every point made by the Orlando Magic at every home game one book is donated to the Early Learning Coalition of Orange County. To date, 12,688 books have been donated to the Early Learning Coalition.
The Baskets for Books program provides a way to continue the team’s literacy efforts, one of the Magic’s three focus areas.
