Barefoot Books teamed up with Cultural Care to provide new books for St Mary's, after the school was devastated by Hurricane Katrina.
What happens when elementary children in New Orleans whose school was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina, receive new Barefoot books? Take a look at this video and watch the excitement unfold! Through our partnership with Cultural Care Au Pair, hundreds of children received new Barefoot books for their school library. While the school has been rebuilt, there was very little money left over for new books. Now the shelves are stocked and the children and teachers are extremely grateful and are already enjoying some wonderful reads.
Caitlin Corcoran, Director of Cultural Care's Au Pair Training School, visited St. Mary's school in New Orleans in May of 2010 to present the school librarian, Michelle Hudson, and some of St. Mary's first-graders with 16 sample books from Barefoot Books.
Applause, applause to Barefoot Books and Cultural Care for their wonderful donation of children's books to a very worthy cause!
