Head Start on Birthdays!

Yesterday, HSP was happy to send off twelve Birthday Boxes for the needy children at Two Rivers Head Start in west Aurora. The children who will receive the boxes birthdays are in August and September. Periodically, the boxes for children enrolled in the school are picked up in order to ensure that they have a fantastic birthday!
 Our relationship began with Two Rivers Head Start earlier this year due to the fact that they have high rates of low income families. There are a high percentage of families of students enrolled in Two Rivers that have a total household income within 125% of the national poverty level. Because of the high need in the area, HSP has adopted more than 50 needy children in the school.  HSP adopted children that are turning 4 or 5 into the program this past year. This relationship has allowed us to reach more needy children in the far reaches of DuPage and Kane County than we ever could before.  
We are very grateful that we are able to continue to support children in the local community through our Children’s Birthday Project and other projects.  We wish to thank all of our supporters for allowing us to make birthdays special for these children in need .If you would like to sponsor a child at $54 a year, call our office at 630-221-8340.
