Cleveland Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco, United Way to hold book drive Saturday at Progressive Field

Books will be collected at all Progressive Field gates; Donated books to benefit Cleveland's Luis Munoz Marin School

Cleveland Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco will hold a book drive in partnership with United Way's "Stuff the Bus" campaign at Progressive Field on Saturday.

Before and during Saturday's game vs. the White Sox, United Way staff will be available at all Progressive Field gates to collect new and gently used children's books at K-8th grade reading levels. Additionally, RTA will have a bus parked on Gateway Plaza during the book drive.

All books will be sorted and donated to the Luis Munoz Marin School, located on Cleveland's near west side. Carrasco is a longtime supporter of the school, having visited to donate books and read to kids last year; he plans to visit the school again in August to donate the books collected during Saturday's drive in person.
