Head Start Fundraiser
Jefferson Chamber Foundation
The Head Start program provides comprehensive early childhood education, health, nutrition, and parent involvement services to low-income children and their families. “It is a program that addresses the individual and household needs of the program participant to create the positive outcome of school readiness for children entering the public school system or attending private schools,” said Jedidiah Jackson, Director of Jefferson Parish Community Action Programs. The Jefferson Chamber Foundation was honored to raise nearly $30,000 for the Head Start program through a fundraiser held at a New Orleans Baby Cakes game in April 2018.
