Last week we joined with about a hundred friends and supporters to officially kickoff the 2016 Children’s Friend 5K Walk & Run sponsored by Panera Bread. As the pictures demonstrate, a great time was had by all at the kickoff event. It was great to have a successful start to what we hope and expect will be a successful Walk on April 30th.
So much of the impact that we make comes from funds raised at events such as the Walk. With an endowment covering administrative expenses, and contracts covering basic program operations, Walk donations allow us to fill the gaps for kids and families in need. This means that we are able to offer summer learning opportunities to Head Start kids who would not otherwise have this opportunity and we can help families when they experience an emergency in their lives such as a fire or loss. These are two examples of how your donations directly help support our kids and families.
