Feb. 21, 2019 Head Start Book Drive

This year for our annual Lenten Drive, we will be partnering with our Day School to collect new and gently used children's books for ages 0-4 for children in Episcopal Community Service's Head Start program. Head Start is a federally funded program designed to give low-income children a "head start" on school readiness so they can begin kindergarten with the skills to succeed. Reading is key to academic success. The earlier children are exposed to books and reading, the better they do in school and in life! There are 2,000 children in ECS's Head Start program who need our help!
