Help the Children’s Center support Head Start children in September!

Head Start reopens September 14! We will be welcoming smiling faces back in classrooms and virtually. These children need backpacks filled with supplies. During the pandemic, many Head Start families are struggling to make ends meet. Can you help us help them with preparations for the school year? There are two ways to help:

1. Provide backpacks that would include:
A Backpack
Boxed Crayons 24 ct
Boxed Pencils 24 ct
Pack Playdough 4 ct
Pencil Sharpener
Glue Sticks 2 ct
Dry Erase Markers 3 ct
Dry Erase Board
Bottle Glue 1 ct
Composition Books
Alphabet Boards
Alphabet Posters
Pre – K Story Book
Pre - K Activity Book

Or, a monetary donation that we will use to purchase the necessary materials.

Our service area (Franklin, Suffolk, Isle of Wight County, and Southampton County) has 285 Head Start slots.

If you are interested in helping, please contact Jeff Zeigler at or 252-256-3793, or Jennifer Branham at

THANKS in advance for helping!
