Two Rivers having gift drive at Big R

The mission of the Two Rivers Head Start Agency is to alleviate the effects of poverty by providing education, support services and opportunities for children, families and communities.

That is done by providing free, half-day preschool for income-eligible children throughout Kane, Kendall, DeKalb, Grundy and Boone counties.

The holiday season is upon us and the staff at Morris Head Start wants to make sure every child at the Morris center has a gift under their tree.

To help us with this, Big R of Morris has generously agreed to put up a giving tree. Stop in at Big R and choose a tag off the tree, shop for the child (you can shop at Big R) and return wrapped gifts to Big R by Dec. 16.
