5 Kid Centric Businesses Unite During Covid-19, Encourages Community to Support Them During Pandemic

Allisono Brandon, Alexandra Drouant and Thea Francesdoni joined News15 at Noon to chat about a team effort to support kid-centric businesses that have had to put their business on pause during Covid-19.

From S.T.E.A.M.E.D.:
The stay-at-home order has proposed many challenges for all kinds of small businesses in Acadiana. We are 5 Female Kid-Centric Small Business Owners. Collectively, we own and operate Nutty Scientists of Acadiana (Alexandra Drouant-Vallejo), Thea’s Dance Academy (Thea Lissi Francesconi), Champagne’s Martial Arts Academy (Monica Larriviere Champagne, South Louisiana Gymnastics Academy (Mandi Vierck Hebert) & Wonderland Performing Arts (Allison Brandon).

We have joined together to create a new organization called Acadiana is STEAMED. We are passionate about the areas in which we teach, and we are here to share that passion with you, as well as ask for your support so that when the stay-at-home order is lifted, you still have places & experiences of enrichment in the areas of science, stage, technology, theatre, engineering, arts, acting, math, music, martial arts, exercise, design and dance for your children.
Our next generation needs us right now more than ever. We have chosen to lift each other up and join our voices together to make a loud sound. Join us in being STEAMED! We are asking you to stay in touch with us, communicate your needs and the needs of your children, and get your kids enrolled in a STEAMED program as soon as it is safe!
