OLHSA Head Start's Run to Read 2017

Sep. 8 2017 - 4:00pm

Join us on September 8th, 2017 from 4 pm - 6 pm at the Stepanski Early Childhood Center, 6010 Hatchery Road, Waterford Twp., for OLHSA Head Start's 3rd annual Run to Read. Run to Read will help raise donations and collect books to grow the libraries of our 1,100 Head Start students. Join us for a 100 yard dash, snacks, story time and other fun activities. Our hope is to receive donations to purchase books, or receive donated books,for ages 0-5, so our children can create personal libraries during the school year and once they're done for the summer they can take them home in order to continue to develop their reading skills. If you have any questions please call 28-209-2763. Donations will be accepted all school year. 

Make a donation online here.
