Detroit, MI. – (April 28, 2017) – Detroit Pistons point guard Reggie Jackson visited Thurgood Marshall Elementary on Thursday to reveal his second Reggie’s Literacy Lounge.  

Through Reggie Jackson’s DETermined to Assist Foundation, Reggie’s Literacy Lounge has been created to inspire children to sit down with a book, in a welcoming environment, with seating and bookshelves stocked with more than 600 books.  

“These kids deserve to have great resources, like age appropriate books and an inviting space that makes them want to sit down and read,” said Jackson. “With the help of donations from the DETermined to Assist Foundation, as well as my personal interest in ensuring these kids receive the resources they need for a good education, I am proud to give back to the city that’s given me so much.”  

Jackson received the honor of reading the first story in the lounge to students. The Literacy Lounge featured Reggie Jackson-themed wall decals, seating areas for students to read, and bookshelves stocked with 600 age-appropriate books.
