Parents and children from across St. Charles Parish attended the Success By 6® Summer Kickoff held Saturday, May 31, 2014, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the St. Charles Community Health Center in Luling.
United Way of St. Charles partnered with the St. Charles Community Health Center and other community agencies to provide this fun, educational event that featured health and vision screenings, parenting workshops, tornado safety preparation, cooking demonstrations and other resources for parents.
Children enjoyed an array of activities such as face painting, book readings, hand washing demonstrations, games, a petting zoo and much more.
Attendees also won door prizes including restaurant and Wal-Mart gift cards. Everyone in attendance received free food, snowballs and giveaways.
“The United Way of St. Charles Success By 6® program enjoys putting on this event because it brings together families in the community to give them the resources they need to raise healthy, happy children. Events like these are important because we know that when a child is prepared for school and life, the entire community benefits,” stated Kacy Kernan, UWSC Director of Community Impact.
Success By 6® is a community impact program developed by United Way of St. Charles that works to provide all children in St. Charles Parish with high quality, early learning opportunities to prepare them to succeed in school and beyond.
