President, Jennifer Roller stopped by to read to the children of the Summer Reading Program put on by the B.R.I.D.G.E. Barber Initiative where K-3rd grade kids participated.
B.R.I.D.G.E Barber's goal is to help create a bridge to cover the gap between learning in school, learning at home and learning during summer vacation by offering alternative incentives to encourage kids to read more, such as free haircuts, designs or complimentary grooming tools.
