Charles Leno Jr. reads Brave Norman with second-grader Alan at Lowell Elementary. 

On Tuesday, November 21, Chicago Bears Starting Left Tackle Charles Leno Jr. joined our Tail Blazers program at Lowell Elementary in Humboldt Park!

Charles enjoyed reading Brave Norman with our Book Buddy volunteers and students, and he loved helping them write their own stories! He even wrote one about his dog, Kobe, which he shared at the end of the program!

Charles also spent time with our Dog Teams  during the program session.

Thanks to the ongoing generosity of Bears Care, we're able to provide SitStayRead for more students and give them wonderful opportunities like this!

Thank you so much to Charles and the entire Bears Care team!
