Photos: Magic build 25 reading corners across Central Florida

Magic big man Glen Davis helped build one of the spaces on Thursday.

The Orlando Magic showed their commitment to Central Florida on Thursday when their employees, along with volunteers from Florida Blue, built 25 "reading corners" throughout the community. Magic big man Glen Davis, CEO Alex Martins, and community ambassadors Bo Outlaw and Nick Anderson joined Florida Blue president Tony Jenkins to build one such corner at the Orange County-Orlando Magic Rec Center, located in Goldenrod Park. The team released photos of the event, and they're embedded in this post.

The Magic provided the reading corners with bookcases and child-sized furniture. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, a publishing house with an office in Orlando, provided the books.

Thursday's event is part of the team's "25-in-25" celebration, a series of 25 community events in the 25 days leading up to the Magic's 25th NBA season.

OrlandoMagic.com scribe John Denton covered the Goldenrod build and has perspective from Davis and Martins. His story is available here.
