VFW Ladies Auxiliary a blessing to Head Start

Sunday, April 20, 2014

To the editor:

The Ladies Auxiliary of the VFW has been such a blessing to the Brazil Head Start, both to the staff and to our children. These ladies, led by Judy Jordon, have stepped up and offered their help with a variety of things. They often just appear on our doorstep and ask us how they can help and sometimes they come with a specific mission in mind. They have donated money to help purchase classroom supplies and those ordinary things that schools need to help engage and educate young children. They have donated at Christmas time when we all feel the need to help families celebrate. Just recently they stepped forward again to help us provide all the trappings of an Easter Egg hunt for each and every one of our seven programs. Every one of our 100-plus children and families were the beneficiaries of their generosity and thoughtfulness.

We wanted to share with the whole community what a commitment to service to children these ladies have. The VFW is very supporting and kind throughout the year.
