NORTH NATOMAS — The Sacramento Kings announced earlier this week that they’ve met their $100,000 goal and presented checks to the four beneficiaries of the Reading and Literacy campaign.

United Way’s STAR Readers, the Sacramento County Office of Education’s (SCOE) Preschool Bridging Model+, Sacramento READS!, and the Sacramento Public Library will reap the benefits of the successful program.

This is the culmination of the Kings reading and literacy campaign that ran from Feb. 12 to March 3, in which season ticket holders’ $200 deposits were donated to the beneficiaries. The goal was to raise $100,000 by March 3.

Fifty-two percent of Sacramento’s third grade students are not reading at grade level, according to STAR Test results. These donations are expected to help ensure Sacramento’s children are at appropriate reading levels by the end of the third grade, the critical age when students transition from learning to read to reading to learn.
