The 2018-2019 school year is approaching and registration forms as well as donations are being accepted for Kewaunee County’s Back to School Program. The program aims to provide some of the required school supplies for families who are on WIC, Food Share or Badger Care, those in the free or reduced breakfast/lunch programs, or have found themselves in an emergency situation.
The Back to School Program distribution date is Aug. 15 at Lakehaven Hall, 96 Ellis Street in Kewaunee. Anyone in need of a form may pick one up at the Kewaunee County Public Health Dept., Algoma Public Library, or Fox Communities Credit Union in Luxemburg.
Registration is due by Aug. 6. Forms received after that date will still be accepted, but those registrants are assigned a later pick-up time. Walk-ins may come to Lakehaven Hall on Aug. 15, 4:30-5 pm. No phone registrations are accepted.
Businesses and community members who would like to help with school supplies or monetary donations should do so by Aug. 8.
Make checks out to Kewaunee County Public Health Department Attn: Deanne Schultz 810 Lincoln St., Kewaunee, WI 54216. Also, indicate that the donation is for the Back to School Program in the Memo.
There are donation boxes at many of the area churches, as well as Shopko Hometown, Nicolet National Bank, Luxemburg and Fox Communities Credit Union, Luxemburg. Supplies may also be dropped off at the Kewaunee County Public Health Department at 810 Lincoln St.
