Public urged to join Big R in helping brighten holidays for Head Start kids

To the Editor:

The Two Rivers Head Start Agency provides free, half-day preschool for income-eligible children throughout Kane, Kendall, DeKalb, Grundy and Boone counties.

The mission of Two Rivers Head Start Agency is to alleviate the effects of poverty by providing education, support services and opportunities for children, families and communities.

With the holidays right around the corner, the Morris Head Start center would like to reach out to the community and encourage you to stop by Big R in Morris. Big R has generously offered to sponser our giving tree this holiday season.

Every child in our center has a tag on the tree that states if the child is a boy or a girl, their age, a favorite toy and their clothing size. Please help make this holiday season extra special for a preschooler by stopping in Big R and choosing a child to shop for.

Once you have purchased a toy or article of clothing, the item or items can be wrapped and returned with the tag to Big R.

Thank you in advance for your generosity.
