Back to School Program is Underway in Kewaunee County

The 2017-2018 school year is right around the corner and registration for Kewaunee County’s annual Back to School Program is underway. The program aims to provide some of the required school supplies for children of families in need. The families who qualify for assistance are those on WIC, Food Share or BadgerCare, as well as, those who partake in the free or reduced breakfast or lunch programs or have found themselves in an emergency situation.

The distribution of supplies is scheduled for Aug. 16 at Lakehaven Hall, 96 Ellis St., Kewaunee.

Back to School Program registration forms were sent home with public school children at the end of the 2106-17 school year. But, anyone in need of a form, including students attending parochial schools or those who are home schooled, may pick one up at the Kewaunee County Public Health Department, Algoma Public Library or Harbor Credit Union in Luxemburg. The deadline to turn in registration forms is Aug. 7.

Back to School Program walk-ins may come to Lakehaven Hall Aug. 16, 4 – 5 pm.

Businesses and community members who would like to help the Back to School Program, may do so in several ways with either a financial or supply donation before Aug. 9.

Financial donations via check may be sent to: Kewaunee County Public Health Department, Attn: Deanne Schultz, 810 Lincoln St., Kewaunee, WI 54216. Indicate the donation is for the Back to School Program.
