Students at the 15 Harris County Department of Education Head Start Centers now have a new book to add to their home library thanks to Balint Charities, a nonprofit seeking to strengthen school success by enriching young lives with reading and music.

Four members of the Balint family toured the Fifth Ward Head Start Center and learned what students do each day. Barbara Balint read Curious George Museum Mystery, the book each student received, to a class.

“I didn’t realize the extension of the Head Start program here like serving breakfast, lunch, the curriculum and visiting the homes of students; it’s amazing,” said Steve Balint. “We’re happy to donate books because it helps children grow and they have something to enjoy at home.”

Balint Charities began working with HCDE Head Start in 2017 after Hurricane Harvey affected the Houston area. To date, they have donated over 5,000 books to head start students.
