TIAA Bank, Jaguars TE Chris Manhertz donate 500 books to YMCA Tiger Academy

The donation is part of TIAA Bank’s Draft Day sweepstakes.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — On Friday, TIAA Bank and Jaguars tight end Chris Manhertz made a generous donation to YMCA Tiger Academy in the form of 500 books.

The donation is part of TIAA Bank’s Draft Day sweepstakes.

TIAA Bank sent two fans to last month’s NFL draft in Las Vegas, and each time a fan entered the sweepstakes, TIAA Bank donated books to READ USA as part of a push to help children in low-income communities. 

READ USA hosts book fairs for children in under-resourced communities, provides peer-to-peer tutoring, offers multicultural literacy programming and gives professional literacy instruction development for educators.
