The lucky students of the GRASP after school program at Marshall Elementary School in Dorchester and the Orchard Gardens Community Center in Roxbury are about to get a pleasant holiday surprise.

Celtics captain Paul Pierce, as well as Glen "Big Baby" Davis and J.R. Giddens, will be reading How the Grinch Stole Christmas to the students next Tuesday, Dec. 15, as part of the Read to Achieve program. The players will also discuss the importance of reading in their lives. 

Read to Achieve is a NBA program designed to promote the value of reading and to build a lifelong love of reading in young people by providing greater access to books. The Boston Celtics Read to Achieve program is supported locally by Kia Motors and ReadBoston.
