LB Ray Lewis and representatives from the Ray Lewis Family Foundation will distribute 200 book bags to youth this Tuesday at Chuck E. Cheese’s (Baltimore, MD). Alongside Ravens rookie WR Torrey Smith and additional teammates, Lewis will supply children with all the necessary supplies to enhance school readiness.

Children to receive the book bags have been pre-selected and are from multiple organizations, including Baltimore City and Baltimore County Public Schools, Leaders of Tomorrow Youth Center, the Woodlawn community and Ray Lewis’ Kids of Character Program.

The Ray Lewis Family Foundation is a non-profit tax-exempt corporation whose mission is to provide personal and economic assistance to disadvantaged youth and families in distress. Since his arrival in Baltimore, Lewis has been a leader both on and off the field. With a focus on building togetherness in the community, his foundation has developed annual programs focused on educational development, self esteem, health awareness and family unity.
