New Soles for Little Souls

872011_35102_7Thanks to a generous donation from the Intemann family, Head Start was able to buy a brand new pair of sneakers for all 135 children in the program on several occasions. The idea came to Melissa Intemann when she wanted to teach her little boy Namath the gift of giving. Rather than bring birthday gifts for Namath, birthday guests were asked to bring a new pair of sneakers for a Head Start child. The theme of the birthday party was New Soles for Little Souls. Namath collected 35 pairs of sneakers at his birthday party. The remainder of the sneakers were paid for by the Intemann family. “It is simply amazing what the Intemann family has done to touch the hearts of each and every child in our Head Start Program” says Head Start Director Mary Ann Holanchock.
