North Center distributes books to Head Start kids thanks to ABC, Disney, and FirstBook

Thanks to Magic of Storytelling, a partnership between Disney and FirstBook, our North Center recently received 600 new books for the children in our Head Start and early learning programs!

Metropolitan board member Diana Palomar, Vice President of Community Affairs at ABC7, helped facilitate the donation, which has already thrilled some of our youngest children – view photos from the book distribution below.

Diana says, “ABC 7 is excited to bring #MagicofStorytelling to North Children’s Center, thanks to Disney and First Book.  Metro Family Services is making Chicago Proud!”


Metropolitan’s North Children’s Center Provides Head Start and child care for children ages 2-5 in the Belmont Cragin, Portage Park and Hermosa communities. Activities engage thinking skills with play and lay the foundations for self-esteem and social skills. Parents participate in workshops, classes and family events to enhance their supportive and nurturing abilities.
