The PNC Foundation has awarded Kent ISD’s Bright Beginnings Program a grant that will help fund Parent Education home visitation for at risk families and playground supplies for early learners.
The grant funds 10 hours per week for two Parent Educators, one of whom is bilingual and visits Spanish-speaking families. The grant also funds playground supplies, travel expenses and postage for newsletters sent to the families.
This marks the 10th anniversary of the PNC’s grant program through its Grow Up Great program, which is dedicated to helping prepare America’s youngest children in school and life. This is the first grant it has awarded to Bright Beginnings.
Bright Beginnings is a partnership between Kent ISD and its constituents that offers services to families with children of newborn to kindergarten age. PNC provides philanthropy to a variety of nonprofit organizations that provide education and economic development.
