ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- Dozens of Stateline kids won't have to worry about staying warm this winter, thanks to a generous donation.
PNC Bank stopped by Rockford's Head Start location at Orton Keyes this morning to hand out hundreds of winter hats, gloves, and scarves to preschoolers.
It's all part of PNC "grow up great" program, which helps Rockford area kids get prepared for success in school. Organizers tell us it's a very rewarding way to give back.
The happiness and the smiles on the children's faces has made it all worthwhile. The hats and gloves are donated by the employees of PNC on their own time with their own funds,” said Paulina Sihakom with PNC Bank.
PNC has already invested heavily in local Head Start programs, to help improve music, science, and history lessons.
