Kewaunee County celebrates 10 years of helping area youth in need with their Back to School event next month. Over 300 children every year benefit from the annual event, which provides students with a backpack full of supplies, new shoes, and a piece of spirit wear for their school. Cindy Kinnard from the Kewaunee County Public Health Department says they get great support from the entire community to make the event possible.
Kewaunee County’s Back to School Program will take place August 16 at Lakehaven Hall. Families on WIC, Food Share, BadgerCare, free or reduced lunch, or show an extreme need qualify for the program. You can find information on how to register and how to donate online with this story.
