Baton Rouge, United States
"Booking it with Baby"
Speaker: Glen "Big Baby" Davis
Former LSU basketball standout Glen “Big Baby” Davis will share with us his experience of his recent “Booking it with Baby” tour that promoted awareness of childhood literacy and brought books to over 1,500 kids in the greater Baton Rouge community. Glen established The Glen “Big Baby” Davis Foundation earlier this year to give back to the young children in the community in appreciation of those who positively affected his upbringing.
You will also learn more about WIM's newest philanthropy project, Dolly Parton's Imagination Library, a childhood literacy program that began in her home state of Tennessee and is now taking off in East Baton Rouge Parish through the efforts of the Capital Area United Way. Through the program, WIM will provide an age-appropriate book each month to 50 preschool children who are enrolled at Istrouma Early Head Start until the age of 5 when they begin Kindergarten. We'll also share with you information regarding the wonderful volunteer opportunities that will be available for our members through this program.
**Please confirm your attendance by Monday, October 10th at 2pm.**
