Home Depot Volunteer Day August 2

The Middleburg Home Depot team will be coordinating a volunteer day at the Middleburg Early Head Start and Head Start site. The event will be held on August 2 at 2506 Blanding Boulevard.

The Home Depot volunteers will be painting the Head Start building, adding fencing around the property, and doing additional work to ensure the safety of the children. More than 30 volunteers will work to prepare the site for the new school year.

Early Head Start is a federally funded community-based program that serves low-income families with infants and toddlers, and pregnant women. Early Head Start promotes healthy prenatal outcomes, enhances the development of infants and toddlers, and promotes healthy family functioning.

Head Start reaches out to low-income and at-risk children ages three, four and five and their families. We provide them with comprehensive educational, nutritional, health, and social services, as well as tools and resources to promote their development so they enter kindergarten ready to learn.

At ECS, we proactively work with children from birth to age five and their families to build a strong educational foundation. We want them to be prepared to succeed in school and in life. It’s a “whole” child approach – we help kids grow intellectually, emotionally, physically and socially. We’ve developed a custom coaching model and curriculum for children, families and teachers. We offer a variety of programs that help raise the standard of care and education in the community. Currently, we work with more than 25,000 children and families in eight counties in Northeast Florida – Baker, Bradford, Clay, Duval, Nassau, Putnam, St. Johns and Union.
