Kewaunee County annual Back-to-School Program reopens

Kewaunee County Public Health has reopened its registration for the annual Back-To-School program that supports families in need by providing school supplies for students for the 2021-2022 school year. The families that are eligible for this program are those that qualify for WIC, Food Share, Badger Care, or free and reduced meals through the school systems. Families who register will receive a backpack, all of the supplies they will need for the school year, a pair of free shoes, outer winter gear, and hygiene products. This year they will also be offering free dental varnishes and COVID-19 vaccines. Cindy Kinnard, the public health officer of the health department, describes what community members can do to get involved.



Those who wish to donate, monetary or supply related, can do so before Monday, August 2nd. For families who qualify for the program registration forms can be found at the Kewaunee County Health Department and both of the Algoma and Kewaunee libraries; they can also be found on the Kewaunee County Website. The deadline for registration forms to be completed and turned in is August 2nd; the forms can be turned in via mail or in person at the Kewaunee Public Health Department. The supplies will be distributed on Wednesday, August 11th at Lakehaven Hall in Kewaunee from 12:30 pm to 5:00 pm; those who did not register but still qualify for this program can attend the distribution day from 4:30 pm to 5:00 pm.
