Read with Malcolm, Discover the magic of reading

For every Optimum Free Checking Account opened, StonehamBank will donate $10 to Malcolm’s Charity, “Share the Magic Foundation.”

Read with Malcolm is a youth literacy initiative founded in 2015 by former college football wide-receiver and current pro-football player, Malcolm Mitchell. The mission of Read with Malcolm is to transform the lives of young students through literacy. The organization’s goals are to introduce book ownership to students in households where reading is not a priority and to improve literacy in schools with below grade-level reading skills. In 2016, Read with Malcolm increased its impact by launching Share the Magic Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. The mission of Share the Magic Foundation is to promote the long-term benefits of reading and book ownership among students in Title I schools and underserved communities.
