LCHS Holds Employee Walk for Wellness as part of its 57th Anniversary Celebration

April 22, 2022

Luzerne County Head Start, Inc. (LCHS) will hold its 3rd annual “Walk for Wellness” on May 16, 2022 from 1pm-2pm at Kirby Park in Wilkes-Barre. The event coincides with the agency’s 57th anniversary celebration. The Walk for Wellness encourages all staff to gather at the park for a day of relaxation and to celebrate the end of the 2021-2022 program year. LCHS believes that in order to create a culture of health in an early childhood environment, educators and staff must also feel supported and valued in their health and well-being.  The goal of this event is to recognize all staff for exceptional performance and encourage, support and reward their professionalism for the job they do.  Well-taken care of employees will help our community’s most vulnerable children receive the education and support they need to be successful.

In addition to the Walk for Wellness, LCHS will celebrate 57 years of services during a virtual celebration earlier that day. All staff who are celebrating milestone anniversaries with the agency will be honored, as well as four community organziations, who have been named LCHS’s 2021-2022 “Outstanding Community Partners.” These include: Pastor David Walker and the Dallas United Methodist Church; Joe and Bedonna Mitchneck, founders of the “Toys from Heidi” project; Caitlin Styczen and Mondelez international and Chief Donald Leshko and the Hazleton Fire Department. LCHS would like to thank our Gold and Silver Level Sponsors who helped to make both of these events possible.
