Luzerne County Head Start, Inc. will provide its summer learning experience to upcoming Head Start children in the summer of 2022, thanks to a golf tournament sponsored by Navient, a loan management, servicing and asset recovery company.
The annual event held at Blue Ridge Trail Golf Club in Mountain Top raised approximately $25,000 for LCHS’s Jump Start program. The program is a 4-week-long summer learning experience that offers comprehensive services for 30 eligible 3 and 4-year-old children who will attend LCHS in the fall.
This year marked the 15th year for the tournament that supports early learning experiences for children. In addition to the tournament, several businesses provided sponsorship and gift donations for raffle drawings and other prizes.
The Navient Community Fund also awarded an $8,000 grant to help support the program.
