Surprising nearby Head Start students with holiday gifts.
Head Start is a national program that promotes school readiness in young children from low-income families. They help preschoolers develop the early reading and math skills needed to succeed in school for years to come.
However, the holidays can be a difficult time for these families. So each year, the employees of Jordan's Furniture bring the holiday spirit to them. Employees shop for students, hoping to get something they’re wishing for. We gather the presents; wrap them, and deliver them directly to their Head Start classroom, where teachers and parents ensure they have their gifts for Christmas morning. Over 500 students in the Jordan’s communities benefit from a Head Start holiday donation.
