Kewaunee County Public Health Director Cindy Kinnard is happy that as the number of needy families goes up, the generosity of the community grows right along with it. Families currently receiving free lunches, on FoodShare or the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program, or in an emergency situation, can register to benefit from the county’s Back to School program until August 5th. Last year, 330 students received school supplies and other necessities from the program, which is up from approximately 200 kids a dozen years ago. Kinnard says she is proud of the support the Back to School program has received over the years.
You can drop off donations for the Back to School program at locations across Kewaunee County, including local churches, participating businesses, and the Public Health office in Kewaunee. The distribution date is August 14th from 12:30 to 5 p.m. at Lakehaven Hall in Kewaunee.
