Head Start’s Coat Drive: Lend Warmth to Families in Need

spot_img

DOVER — During October, Head Start is organizing a coat drive. Given that coats and pajamas can be among the costliest items for families during this season, your donations of new items would be greatly appreciated.

Kindly drop off your contributions at our center located at 18 Thompson Avenue, Dover, by October 31.

The story of the Head Start Community Program in Morris County mirrors the national narrative. Commencing its journey in 1965 with a summer initiative that served 45 economically disadvantaged preschoolers, today, the program proudly caters to 333 children, from birth to five years, including services for expectant mothers.

A breakdown of the services reveals an extensive support network:

  • A home-based program for pregnant women and toddlers up to 18 months.
  • A center-based curriculum at the Dover site for kids aged 18 months to three years.
  • For preschoolers between the ages of 3 and 5, center-based learning is available at the Dover headquarters, the Central Avenue Complex in Morris Plains/Parsippany, and the Duffy Elementary School in Wharton.

Furthermore, as part of their commitment to safety and health, the Head Start facilities have recently undergone lead and copper testing, with results available for the Dover, Morris View, and Central Avenue Complex sites.

For more information on the Head Start programs, and to join hands in empowering the next generation, interested individuals and families are encouraged to reach out and explore the plethora of offerings at Head Start centers.
