Local businesses make a difference by funding early childhood needs

A huge thank you to the H.B. Fuller Company for supporting local Early Head Start and Early Support for Infants and Toddlers (ESIT) programs by donating learning materials and toys for centers where Play Groups are offered to children and families of children ages birth to three years old. As part of Make a Difference Day, H.B. Fuller employees participate in service projects to support community organizations. This year, after hearing about the need for educational resources, they agreed to donate learning materials, books, toys, art supplies, and even a large play kitchen to centers where young children gain important skills they need to prepare for school.

“We greatly appreciate the generosity of H.B. Fuller staff for being willing to fulfill this need,” said Carol Hall, Director of Early Intervention for Educational Service District 112.

The Early Head Start and Early Support for Infants and Toddlers (ESIT) programs assist qualifying low income families in assuring that children ages birth to three receive quality early learning and are prepared to start school.
