There are a lot of great ways you can help make someone’s holiday a little brighter this year. One way is to join the GRCC United Way campaign and Stuff the Sled — a program that is replacing Adopt a Family. This program provides holiday gift bags to children in Kent County Head Start.
A head start teacher shares a little about her students:
Our students are very eager to learn their a,b,c’s and numbers but also about the world around them. Exploring the outdoors and nature around our school is very exciting. Most of our kiddos live in apartments or in the inner city where they do not have a safe yard to explore. Giving hands on experiences to seeing and holding bugs, insects, snakes, turtles and frogs is a highlight of our days.
The deadline to participate is Dec. 1 so volunteers have time to build gift bags for these energetic kids! Purchase an item for Stuff the Sled here on the college’s group page.
