Best Beginnings Collection

"Warm Fuzzies" for Little Ones

Clinton's Preschool Initiative, Best Beginnings, is collecting new pajamas, slippers, socks, and underwear for children.  Please bring your contributions to Henry Carter Hull library, Joel School, or Red Barn Children's Center by December 14.  Items will be distributed through Clinton Social Services. It is one way to give children "warm fuzzies" and perhaps in a small way contribute to their basic needs.  Once children's most basic needs are met, they learn better. Best Beginning's mission is to promote the development of every Clinton child, ages birth through five. Scholarships are given, Library Preschool is offered, parent and child activities are held, and workshops are available for parents and professionals.

What a great idea! I'll send some items to Joel via my kids' backpacks. Such an easy way to help a child feel a bit more comfortable and secure. Thanks for arranging this Best Beginnings.

Thanks Best Beginnings! With all of the toy drives we often see, it is nice to see giving geared more toward basic needs. Most of us take the privilege of owning pajamas for granted.
