NEMCSA staff are doing cool things!!!

Early Head Start staff Elizabeth Gross, Gina Palazzo-Slayton and Melanie Downing wore Volley For a Cure shirts to support their rival volley ball game last month.  All proceeds from the shirts worn went for cancer research. Mio and Fairview have been doing this for several years and it is a great rivalry that comes together for something positive!  
The 17th Annual Walk against Homelessness and Hunger in Alpena raised over $2,000 that will be utilized for homeless needs for the Northeast Counties. NEMCSA staffed joined with other volunteers for this great event!
Michelle Koin, Early Head Start Team Leader for Bay and Arenac Counties, and Niki Napolitano, Early Childhood Special Education Supervisor at the Bay-Arenac ISD, were presented with 150 Lock Boxes from Barry Schmidt the Coordinator of the Bay County Prevention Network and Project Director of the Neighborhood Resource Center. These lock boxes will provide families in our Home Visiting Programs a tool to keep prescription drugs and marijuana out of the hands of young children. Barry Schmidt “This funding is putting Prevention into Practice and partnered with NEMCSA Early Head Start and the Bay-Arenac ISD, programs that make a difference in the lives of families.”
