THE STORY:

OLHSA's free Head Start preschool program serves all of Oakland County and over 1,700 children per year. This year is Head Start's 50th anniversary so we've been celebrating! Our program serves low-income children ages 0-5 as well as children with special needs.

We hope to continue our celebrations while creating personal libraries for our students. Our hope is to receive donations to purchase books, or receive donated books, 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.

We hope you will consider making a donation to our cause. If you'd like to donate a book you can drop it off at our office at 196 Cesar E. Chavez Avenue, Pontiac Michigan. Please call 248-209-2623 if you have questions.
