Bradford-Tioga Head Start Gives Back
Giving, makes us all feel good. There is no time that giving is more prevalent than during the holidays. Choosing the right way to give or the right place to give is usually the hardest part.
Jill Wood, BTHS, Inc. Information Systems Coordinator ready to load up the overflowing cart of items to drop off at the Blossburg Food Bank.
In November, Bradford-Tioga Head Start, Inc. Central Office staff decided they wanted to give back to the Blossburg Community. Jill Wood, Information Systems Coordinator came up with using the idea of a reverse advent calendar. Each week, throughout the month of December, Head Start Staff shopped at the Blossburg Holiday Market to purchase items to add to a grocery cart from the provided list. On December 22nd, all of the cart’s contents were donated to the Blossburg Food Bank. It was a fun way to buy items each week from a local store and donate to a local place. Volunteers at the Blossburg Food Bank were so excited to receive the items.
