Martellus Visits Chicago Site

CHICAGO, IL (May 17, 2017) — Jumpstart was thrilled to host Super Bowl champion Martellus Bennet for a Jumpstart session at long-time partner site, Erie Neighborhood House, in Chicago last month. Martellus joined Jumpstart Corps members from DePaul University for the session, and even presented a short play in the puppet theater, much to the delight of the children (and Corps members)!

Martellus was a Literacy Champion at last year’s Read for the Record, and continues to be a supporter of Jumpstart’s work and mission to help all children enter kindergarten prepared to succeed. Jumpstart wishes Martellus good luck with his new team, the Green Bay Packers, this fall!

Together, we can help all children build the key language and literacy skills they need to take on the world.
