6th Annual Winter Dinner Activity Announced

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, over 16 million children lived in food insecure (low food selection & very low food security) households in 2010.   We are fast approaching our 6th Annual Winter Dinner Giveaway offered to those families enrolled in our Head Start and Early Head Start programs. I understand that you may support other community organizations that provide gifts, food, and toys to families in need during the upcoming holidays, however, please consider this special request.
 
Northern Panhandle Head Start, Inc. provides comprehensive services to nearly 650 children and families who reside in Hancock, Brooke, Ohio, Marshall and Wetzel Counties of West Virginia. NPHS Inc. is a non-profit program which offers a school readiness curriculum, individual family services support, supports a strong health, dental and nutrition component to ensure children are connected to a medical and dental home in our local communities, promotes father and family involvement, and all at no cost to families. We understand their needs, on a personal family level, we are in their homes and lives on a daily basis.
 
Nearly all of those enrolled in our program are making ends meet on incomes that fall at or below 100% of the federal poverty guidelines. From our past experience with this worthy endeavor, we know that the families appreciate this added support.
 
I hope you will commit to support the purchase of a winter dinner basket for a family.   $50 will provide a nutritious meal for a family of four; however any contribution would be greatly appreciated. Your contribution stays right here in the Ohio Valley because all items are purchased within our local communities.
 
Thank you for considering our request. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
 
Kind regards,
