Students still have time to enjoy the summer, but the Kewaunee County Public Health Department is making sure their parents are getting ready for school this fall. For the fourth year in a row in conjunction with United Funds of Kewaunee County, the Public Health Department is sponsoring the Back to School Program for families eligible for free and reduced lunch in the area on August 15. Preparations are already underway as the department works to register families while its partners continue to collect school supplies and other items to give. Cindy Kinnard from the Kewaunee County Public Health Department says the program is an important undertaking.
Over 340 kids every year benefit from the program. Participants are encouraged to register for the Back to School Program before August 6. We have information on how to sign up for the Back to School Program set to take place on August 15 at Lakehaven Hall in Kewaunee online with this story.
