Carlos Carrasco and United Way to hold book drive at Progressive Field


Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco will hold a book drive in partnership with the United Way Stuff the Bus campaign at Progressive Field on Saturday, June 18. Carrasco, who has always had a passion for reading and literacy initiatives, is excited to be involved in United Way’s annual Stuff the Bus campaign.

Before and during Saturday’s game vs. the White Sox, United Way staff will be available at all gates of Progressive Field to collect children’s books K-8th grade reading level. Additionally, RTA will have a bus parked on the plaza during the book drive. All books will be sorted and donated to the Luis Munoz Marin School, located in the near west side of Cleveland. Carrasco is a longtime supporter of the school and plans to visit in August to donate the books in-person.

Bring some books to the ballpark and help kids read all summer long!
