HEAD START FAMILY SPONSORSHIPS

Stephanie Mills Missions, Uncategorized Leave a Comment

Without the help of Custer Road, our family wouldn’t have Christmas.”  We hear this every year from parents who benefit from the Head Start Family Sponsorship drive.  

 

The PISD Head Start program is an exemplary preschool program for disadvantaged children.  It’s located in Meadows Elementary in east Plano. Teachers have prepared packets listing the needs and wants of each child and their family members. We will sponsor 50 families for the holidays. Packets will be available on Sundays October 31 and November 7 in The Commons to sponsor a Head Start Student and their family for the holidays. Information regarding the family, a picture of the student, and detailed instructions will be included in the information packet. To help cover expenses for Thanksgiving, gift cards for a grocery store or Wal-Mart should be purchased and turned in to the school on Tuesday, November 18, between 7:00am and 4:00pm.

 

Christmas gift drop-off for Custer Road is Wednesday, December 1, from 7:00am to 4:00pm. Drop-offs days are very easy, school staff members stand by with carts to pick-up your clearly labeled bags of gifts.  

 

This project is exciting for the entire family, and something that Custer Road families and Sunday school classes look forward to every year!  It is a wonderful way to be the hands and feet of Christ for a family who may not feel joy during the holidays.
