  • Head Start Family Sponsorships

    “I can’t wait to see my children’s faces light up Christmas morning. You are a massive blessing. Thank you so much. Words can’t describe what this means for our family,” wrote one grateful parent after benefiting from last year’s Head Start Family Sponsorship.

    The PISD Head Start Program is nationally recognized as an exemplary preschool program for disadvantaged young children. Teachers have been visiting these homes and have prepared the packets listing the needs and wants of each child and his family.

    Each year individuals and groups at CRUMC adopt for the holidays one or more of the 146 Head Start families at the Head Start School in east Plano. This year on Sunday mornings, October 22 and October 29, you have the opportunity to sign up at the tables in the back hallway to adopt a child, ages 3 – 5  years old, and their family for the holidays.

    Information about the family, a picture of the student, and sponsorship guidelines will be provided in an information packet for you. Gifts will be delivered to the school on dates specified by November 16 for Thanksgiving or in early December for Christmas, by the child’s sponsor.

    For questions or additional information, contact chairpersons Janice Watson via email
    at janice@jnjwatson.com (or call her at 972-345-5503) or contact Peggy Gesin via email at mjgesin@aol.com (or call her at 214-501-4755).
