Head Start is a preschool program for low income children before they begin Kindergarten. Kiwanis gives books to all children three times a year as well as reads in the classrooms weekly during the school year. Our weekly speaker at meetings also sign a book that is given to the classroom libraries each year in an all school assembly.
We currently fund the purchase of the books as a qualifying organization with First Book. And many of the additional books that we give to the children are free, we just pay shipping. There is an application process and the link to that program is www.firstbook.org/receive-books
A FAQ's sheet on how to register is also available in this document.
