Judy Lundy and Tami Sortman of Lundy Law Library Express will join students from the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation for three reading events at Philadelphia city ice rinks to help build excitement around reading.

Snider Hockey supports students off the ice with various academic programming, such as Reading Buddies. Reading Buddies, delivered by Lundy Law Library Express, is a reading and literacy initiative open to all participants, but specifically designed to help students in grades PK-3 who are behind in reading level. Snider Hockey students stay after practice or come early to read with a Big Buddy: a coach, adult volunteer or older Snider Hockey student. In addition to helping Little Buddies practice their reading skills, the Reading Buddies program promotes literacy and builds excitement around reading.

In 2012, as part of The Lundy Law Foundation’s commitment to childhood education, they began the Lundy Law Library Express. The Lundy Law Library Express partnered with the Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation in a reading and literacy initiative. Colorful Lundy Law Library Express library carts filled with books are available in each of the four inner-city ice-skating rinks served by Snider Hockey.

The Ed Snider Youth Hockey Foundation was created by Philadelphia Flyers Chairman Ed Snider in 2005 as his personal commitment to teach children important life lessons. Using the sport of hockey, the mission of Snider Hockey is to build lives and unite communities, helping educate young people to succeed in the game of life. Snider Hockey programs are provided at no cost and are focused on underserved boys and girls who otherwise would not have the opportunity to play, with an emphasis on character development, life skills, fitness, nutrition, and academics.
