How to Help

Inkind Match Required

PACT receives grant funding from the U.S. Dept. of Health and Human Services to operate Head Start and Early Head Start.  The funding requires a 20% inkind match through donated funds, space, materials, volunteer hours, and services from the communities where services are provided.  If PACT does not receive the 20% match, we cannot expend all of our funds and may not be able to provide all of our services. 

How You Can Help

Cash Donations

PACT is a not-for-profit 501C-3 organization, therefore donations are tax deductible.  You may specify that your donation be used for a specific purpose, such as children's books for a particular center, to purchase playground equipment, or for hats and gloves for children to use during outdoor play. If you are interested in knowing what some of our needs are, please contact Shanna Edison, Executive Director. 

Volunteer Hours

Both program parents and community members are welcomed and encouraged to volunteer in our program.  PACT volunteer hours are "valued" at a dollar amount and are counted as part of the inkind match from the local community.  There are a wide range of volunteer opportunities available in our agency.  Please review the Volunteer Brochure and call our Mt. Sterling Office or your local center to volunteer.  


New or gently used items that we can use in our program may be donated to PACT.  Items that are in demand include hats, mittens, and gloves for outdoor play time, infant, toddler, and preschool books for lending libraries, classroom art supplies, plastic storage tubs, etc.
