Barber Pays Kids to Read Out Loud During Haircuts
This story made me think of Rochester's own Pasquale Presa and his outreach to kids. He's a businessperson that wants to make sure kids see their options, make connections, and get excited about the future.
Same here, but in Pennsylvania...and not a pizza place, but a barbershop. The City Cuts Barbershop in Kutztown Pennsylvania, to be exact. According to ABC Action News, the barbershop...
...announced the "Books by Kids" program, which offers young customers $3 to read a book to their barber while getting their hair cut. Owner Jonathan Escueta said the idea behind the program is to build kids' confidence by giving them experience with public speaking.
The community taking care of the community. Love it. Check out the news report, looks like Escueta is helping them along with their reading.
