Ypsilanti parents with kids up to five years old can now get some help making sure they're ready when they hit school age.  S-O-S Community Services is launching a program called Parents as Teachers.

 

Rhonda Weathers is Executive Director of S-O-S Community Services

She says the program pairs families with Parent Educators, who come into the home to "play work" with families.

SOS Community Services is asking the community to consider helping feed 20 needy families this holiday season by donating food items Wednesday.

Development Director Chelsea Brown says SOS Community Services holds holiday food distribution for families in need every year.

Brown says anyone interested in donating food items can drop them off at the SOS Communitiy Services offices at 114 North River Street in Ypsilanti.

Monetary donations can be made online via the link below.
