Kewaunee County fills backpacks for kids

Over 15,000 donated school supplies were distributed to children last week at the annual Back to School Program in Kewaunee.  The event, organized by the Kewaunee County Public Health Department, saw about 300 kids pick up needed school supplies at Lakehaven Hall.  Director Cindy Kinnard says the community support continues to grow by leaps and bounds each year.



Kinnard adds that one person unanimously donated more than $1,000 worth of supplies as well as a couple who collected supplies at their wedding and shopped for more items with their wedding gift money.
