Your donation will go a long way to serve in changing the lives of preschoolers preparing for transition to Kindergarten:
Safety Locks Lace-Locking Gear is a winning solution for dangling shoelaces, which locks in place the shoelaces once tied together. Safety Locks are designed to prevent injuries resulting from untied shoelaces and promotes safety while playing on the playgrounds or engaged in sports activities.
This Autumn, Sumter County Opportunity, Inc. launches the "Safety Locks Campaign 2020", to continue to raise awareness of the safety for everyone participating in activities with our children during Head Start Program Services and at home.
To participate, we are encouraging every parent of a Head Start Student to donate $5.00 for each pair of Safety Locks for each child enrolled in the Program. Proceeds received from the "Safety Locks Campaign" will be designated for acquisition of new and improved playground equipment for all thirteen Head Start and Early Head Start Outreach Locations.
Our highest priority is the health and safety of the children and families we serve and we encourage everyone to spread the word about the "Safety Locks Campaign" to your friends, family and associates by sharing via social media. Ask your circle to support our Campaign by donating $5.00 for at least one pair for their children!
