New Orleans, LA Boys Booked on Beauty shops Reading Nook
The Mocha Moms, Inc. New Orleans, LA Chapter joins national initiative to encourage reading among boys and girls in urban communities.
The New Orleans Chapter of Mocha Moms, launched their Mocha Literacy Program at Kool Smiles (Gretna Location). The launch was very successful. Many families came out to enjoy Story Telling By: Marlon Favorite (former NFL Saints Player), games and indoor play, refreshments, raffles and book give-a-ways.
The most important factor of The Mocha Literacy Program is to promotion of reading in our homes, schools and throughout the community. It’s nice to see our kids reading instead of playing videos games and utilizing other electronic devices.
It’s essential to make READING our #1 Priority for our KIDS!
A special thanks to Chauni Grant of Kool Smiles, Marlon Favorite, The African American Resource Center at New Orleans Public Library, HIV Prevention Mobsters, Fleur De Lish Specialty Desserts, It’s in the Bag (Maternity Bags & Beyond) and HIPPY New Orleans.
