Big Red from the Arizona Cardinals speaks with children at El Mirage Elementary School.

AZ Cardinals read to El Mirage students

The students at El Mirage Elementary School got a very special visit from the Arizona Cardinals Milk and Cookies Program this week. Big Red, the mascot, got the students energized and ready for reading. Big Red was joined by Cardinals alumni Mark Maddox and cheerleaders Emily and Zaryn who read a selection of books to students.  The students were awarded the special assembly for perfect attendance and leadership skills.  After the reading, students enjoyed a yummy snack of milk and cookies, an Arizona Cardinals backpack, and mini football.

The Cardinals, SRP, and Albertsons-Safeway have teamed up for 19 years on the Milk and Cookies program, which supports and promotes literacy throughout Valley elementary schools.
