Head Start Children Celebrate Community Action Month 60th Anniversary with Huggie Hearts

As Hinds County Human Resource Agency (HCHRA) celebrates the 60th anniversary of Community Action Month, we’re excited to engage our little ones in a special activity that spreads love and creativity.

The Huggie Hearts initiative isn’t just about coloring; it’s about fostering a sense of compassion and connection among children and their communities.

Why hearts, you may wonder? Well, hearts symbolize the universal language of love and empathy. They remind us of the importance of kindness, compassion, and understanding in building strong, resilient communities. And what better way to celebrate Community Action Month than by spreading love one heart at a time?

So, as we commemorate the 60th anniversary of Community Action Month, let’s celebrate the power of love and compassion embodied in the simple act of coloring a heart. Together, let’s continue to nurture a culture of kindness, generosity, and empathy that uplifts and strengthens us all. After all, in a world where we can be anything, let’s always choose to be kind.

Take a look at the beautiful artwork from the children in our Head Start centers. We would like to thank the Head Start teachers and staff or helping to coordinate this activity.
