Pack N Learn Campaign

Join with the Region 9 Head Start Association to provide comfort to Head Start children and families displaced by recent natural disasters.

There are two ways to donate:  Donate funds or donate items to be added to our care packs


  • Fund Donations

You can give any amount of money by check or on-line. Please note it is for the Disaster Relief efforts.  Mail Donations to:  Region 9 Head Start Association, 1225 8th Street, Suite 342, Sacramento, CA  95814.  Donate on-line, click here 


  • Care Packs

Children’s care packages with personal and learning essentials for those affected by disasters in California, Florida, Puerto Rico and Texas.

Our effort, powered by your generosity, will be to build small kits of items to be sent to local programs in the affected areas.  Each pack would include a variety of items reflecting our Head Start values such as –

  • Personal Care
    • Tooth brush, hand washing wipes, tissues and toiletries, healthy snack
  • Clothing and comfort
    • Shirt, pants, underwear, socks and knit hat and gloves
  • Learning resources
    • Scarfs for dramatic play, journal for drawing or writing, crayons, 25-50-piece puzzle, read aloud books.

Our goal.  We would like to build 100 kits and distribute them to any Head Start program who are serving families touched by these recent events.  Or colleagues at NHSA will assist us in locating programs who are working with homeless families or those who have relocated outside of our region. 

What else can you do? 

  • You can collect new items at your center or administrative office. 
  • When you have a box full of items – ship them to our address listed above.
  • Hold an emergency preparedness event – and talk with your families about being ready – and share with them this opportunity to care for others. 

Mail care pack donations to:  Region 9 Head Start Association, 1225 8th Street, Suite 342, Sacramento, CA  95814
