NORTH CHARLESTON, SC -

On Friday, March 8th, the Professional Football Players Mothers' Association will bring
its "Reading across America" campaign to North Charleston.

On Friday, March 8th at 1 p.m. several of the mothers will appear at W. B. Goodwin Elementary to award students with books donated by the organization.

The purpose of the Professional Football Players Mothers' Association (PFPMA) is: to educate and inform Mothers about the business of professional football, enhance the public image of professional football players, promote respect and fair play on and off the field, assist players in their charitable efforts in the communities from which they came and in which they work, and to support each other.

The Association's mission is: To identify and implement programs that advance the organization's vision by providing yearly educational seminars and programs designed to inform and assist players and their mothers in their transition to the NFL.

To provide financial and moral support to charities for at-risk-youth and disadvantaged communities with revenue generated yearly in fund-raising events and organizational sponsorships and to also provide volunteer representation in events in local communities to promote education by sharing the success of our sons and PFPMA. There are 71 members of the PFPMA.

Diane Ross, mother of Cincinnati Bengals Defensive End and Ft. Dorchester graduate Carlos Dunlap, is Principal of W.B. Goodwin Elementary school.
