Head Start

Custer Road’s support of the Head Start Program is a tradition we’ve enjoyed for many years! There are 146 students currently enrolled at the school, which is a federally-funded program for students whose parents meet low-income guidelines. These students are always so excited to receive new clothes, not hand-me-downs or clothing from Goodwill or a garage sale. With the recent economic downturn, our help is needed more than ever. It’s time for the Head Start Sweat suit Drive!

During the last two years of Covid-19, instead of outfitting every student, we collected the individual components and gave them to the social work department to pass out as needed. This year, the student roster is stable enough that we can go back to the fun way we’ve done it in years past. This is fun shopping for the family to do, or your Sunday school class!

Stop by the Head Start table in the Commons area on Sunday, September 25th, and Sunday, October 2nd, and select from several decorated “hand” cut-outs with a child’s size and gender. Purchase a new sweat suit, a package of underwear and a package of socks, place them in a bag with the “hand” visible, and return to the Mission Donation Area near the church office by October 16th. We will deliver all to the school the following week.

All components can be easily found at Wal-Mart, Target, Kohls and other stores. We’re also happy to do the shopping for you; just donate online or by check, indicating your donation is for “Head Start Sweat suits”. Ordering online? Have items shipped directly to Custer Road, 6601 Custer Road, Plano 75023, Attn: Head Start Drive.

Feeling extra generous? Please feel free to include jeans for girls or boys in sizes 4, 6, 8, and 10. Extra socks and underwear packages are also needed, for use during the school year. The social worker at the school reports that her supply from last year is depleted.
