Please join us again in working toward providing gifts to over 500 children enrolled in the Head Start Program in Chester County.
Head Start is a federally funded program that provides quality preschool education, health, nutrition, and family services to children ages 3-5 from lower income families. In order to qualify for Head Start, a family of four must make less than $23,850.
As you can imagine, raising a family below the poverty line presents numerous challenges. Many of the families struggle to provide their children with their daily basic needs and have little to nothing left over for the holidays. It is our hope that by reaching out to the community, we will be able to ease the burden of the holidays for the families. No matter the income level, all parents want to see the smiles on their children’s faces on Christmas morning. Together, we can help to make that happen!
