To the editor:
As the new Director of the Head Start program for
Community Action Partnership of Central Illinois (CAPCIL), I have
felt nothing but warmth and encouragement from the communities we
serve. I am extremely excited to serve the community in my new
capacity and wanted to write this letter to express my gratitude for
the continued support Logan County has for the CAPCIL Head Start
We have been a staple here for low income families for decades, and
will continue to do the work for the children and families that need
us the most. As we evolve and make changes to improve our programs
to better address the educational needs of our families, it is nice
to know that Logan County stands firmly behind our mission.
Early Head Start is currently hosting a Diaper Drive to help support
the families participating in our expanding program to include
center-based classes. Blades Hair and Nail Salon, Fabulous
Hairstyles, Graue Chevrolet, Shear Perfection Beauty Salon, Hair
Headquarters, and the CAPCIL Corporate office have been gracious in
allowing us to place collection boxes in their facilities and the
community has been generous in their donations.
[to top of second column in this letter]
It is this type of support that allows us to continue our efforts to
fight poverty and to work with the low income population.
Thank you for taking the time to read this letter. I am proud to
make a difference in the lives of your children by being an
essential partner in their education.
