Head Start preschoolers receive books thanks to generosity of Lee’s Summit Kiwanis Club

The Lee’s Summit Kiwanis Club recently donated $500 to Great Beginnings Early Education Center with funds benefiting children in the Head Start program. The donated money will purchase books for the preschoolers to take home.

In addition, two Kiwanis members visit the Head Start classrooms each month to read to students.
