Well Regarded Community Based Black-Owned Laundromat Expands To Offer COVID-19 Clean Up Services
Reach Metro Laundry Delivery Service at: 516-234-9187

While COVID-19 infections and deaths in NYC are in sharp decline, the sharp incline in cases nationally, who have eased restrictions on lifestyle issues like masks, gloves, and good cleaning procedures illustrates the point -- we should continue to be careful and vigilant fighting the Coronavirus. A local Black-owned laundry service Metro Laundry Service, is looking to clean up the Coronavirus spread in Southeast Queens.

New York City, was the most adversely impacted area by COVID-19. Also Queens was once the most adversely impacted area in New York City.  The Metro Laundry Service, located at 196-16 Linden Blvd, in Jamaica, Queens, 11412 (Call: 516-234-9187), is stepping into the mix to offer pickup laundry cleaning services to keep residents safe practicing social distancing by customers not having to take trips to the laundry in person.

Metro Laundry Service was founded by Maxine Howell, and has been in existence since October of 2011. Starting her business in 2011 made sense because all nine of her children were no longer depending on her raising them. The thought of going back to work as nursing assistant was not something she looked forward to so she decided to add a valuable service to our community.

With the spread of COVID-19 she is working harder to stop the spread by providing a high quality environmentally friendly laundry service where people in our community don't have to defy social distancing guidelines when visiting a laundromat and therefore avoid the risks associated with large numbers of people in closely contained spaces in NYC.

The organization has named her a Book Fairy Jr. and she has been named one of the Long Island Nets "Heroes of Long Island" for being so kind.

Kelly has a passion for reading and releases book reviews and read-alongs on YouTube, Facebook and Instagram TV. During the New York COVID-19 shelter-in-place mandate by Governor Cuomo, Kelly watched The Book Fairies read along and with one shout out from the host, she instantly fell in love. Kelly expressed, "Coronavirus caravans are cool but I want kids to read and books are amazing." The Book Fairies launched Contactless Book Drives and Kelly knew The Book Fairies would be a perfect fit to celebrate her birthday with a purpose.

BLACK ENTREPRENEUR REINVENTS RETAIL FOR BLACK HAIR & BEAUTY PRODUCTS

White Plains, NY  4th Ave Market has exploded onto the scene as a new Black-owned online retail platform tackling economic inequality in the Black hair care and beauty supply industry. Black people spend $2.5B annually on hair care and beauty products, yet they only own 7% of all beauty supply stores. And historically, the Black entrepreneurs who make beauty products haven't been able to get distribution in large retail stores as big brands spend money to keep them off the shelves.

4th Ave Market CEO, Salim Holder, co-founded the company, which is now the largest Black-owned online hair care and beauty supply store in the United States.

"Our goal is to create a simple shopping experience and offer easier access to a diverse inventory of the brands that Black people love. And do so at prices that are up to 30% lower than traditional retail. Thanks to our loyal customers, our sales have been organically doubling month-over-month," said Holder.

DENVER-AREA WOMEN LAUNCH DIGITAL GREEN BOOK CAMPAIGN TO HIGHLIGHT SAFE, WELCOMING BUSINESS AND TRAVEL OPPORTUNITIES FOR BLACK AMERICANS



Denver, CO Birdwatching. Barbecuing in a park. Browsing a store. Eating at a restaurant. These activities are framed as every day, fun, and enjoyable activities for most, but these same activities can also become dangerous and deadly based solely on the color of your skin.

This American reality is the impetus behind Crystal Egli and Parker McMullen-Bushman's goal of creating a Digital Green Book for Black Americans to research and patronize businesses that champion inclusivity and provide welcoming environments both when traveling and managing the business of daily life.

Originally created by Victor H. Green in 1936 as a response to the issues faced by Black travelers, The Negro Motorist Green-Book provided a guide for Black readers nationwide identifying businesses available to Black travelers in the openly segregated South, safer locations in the more covertly segregated North and information to avoid "sundown towns" or the heavy presence of the Ku Klux Klan. The end of legal segregation brought the end of publishing the Green Book with the 1966-1967 issue, but the need for resources to help guide Black Americans to welcoming and inclusive places to spend their time and money has never ended.

IN TRIBUTE TO MEN'S HEALTH


Nationwide  The shocking and tragic murder of George Floyd left the world reeling. From every point of the globe, passionate citizens - many of whom had never participated in a protest before - stood in lockstep outraged. The eight minutes and 43 seconds of a knee in the neck snuffed the life out of him. But it aroused the world and put another spotlight on the shame of police brutality leveled against black men.

Real Men Charities, Inc. is a Chicago-based nonprofit whose mission is to emphasize family wellness and creative engagement for fathers and positive male influencers. Because their focus is on African-American men, this blatant act of in-your-face murder rocked the organization.

In tribute to the month of June - designated as Men's Health Month - Real Men Charities is sharing their perspectives on the importance of men staying physically and mentally healthy. Central to achieving this nirvana is eating healthy. It is a message that resonates and yields results.

JEFFREY DANIEL (SHALAMAR) RELEASES ANTI-HATE SONG - "MAKE LOVE GREAT AGAIN"


Nationwide   "Make Love Great Again" is a track written to provide an antidote to the culture of hate that has been perpetuated by political leaders of recent times. The world is in flames and now seems the opportune moment to release a song that has a positive message of hope. The catchy track is reminiscent of Pharrell's "Happy", but with added cutting political edge. Bringing people together is the theme, reuniting divided nations and focusing on love and compassion is the message.

Jeffrey has been moved by the traumatic events of the past few weeks, the slaying of Ahmaud Arbery, the murder of George Floyd, and the many ongoing injustices around the planet. The world needs to change. Governments need to make positive moves to eliminate police brutality, social injustice, and discrimination. People need to work together as one human family to make a better world.

"I have lived a very extraordinary life on different continents, and I have learned that basically, all people aspire for a common universal commodity love. If we make love great again, we will all be great," says Jeffrey.
