Back to School Program
The 2017-2018 school year is right around the corner and planning is well underway for the county’s annual Back to School Program scheduled on Wednesday, August 16, 2017. The Back to School Program aims to provide some of the required school supplies for children of families in need. Families who qualify for free or reduced breakfast or lunch programs, are on WIC, Food Share or BadgerCare or those who are in an emergency situation of need, qualify for the Back to School Program.
Families who feel that they qualify should fill out a registration form. Forms were sent home with public school children at the end of the school year. Anyone in need of a form, including students attending parochial schools, or who are home schooled, may pick one up at the Kewaunee County Public Health Department (810 Lincoln Street), at the Algoma Public Library, or Harbor Credit Union in Luxemburg. Registration forms are due August 7th. Those who register by August 7th will be sent a postcard notifying them of their assigned time for picking up supplies. Late registrations will be accepted but will be assigned a later time. No phone registrations are accepted. Walk-ins may come from 4:00-5:00 pm on Wednesday, August 16, 2017. For more information please contact Deanne or Cindy with the Public Health Office at 920-388-7160. The program will be held at Lakehaven Hall, Kewaunee and we would like to thank the Board of Lakehaven Hall for their gracious donation of the space to hold our program again this year.
Businesses and community members who would like to help the Back to School Program, may do so in several ways. Financial donations may be sent to: Kewaunee County Public Health Department, Attn: Deanne Schultz, 810 Lincoln Street, Kewaunee, WI 54216. Please indicate that the donation is for the Back to School Program. Businesses and individuals can also donate school supplies. Items that are especially needed this year are loose leaf paper, 1” – 3 ring binders, 2 pocket folders, colored pencils, markers and highlighters and dry erase markers. There are donation boxes at many of the area churches, as well as Shopko Hometown, and Nicolet Bank, Luxemburg. Supplies may also be dropped off at the Health & Human Services Building at 810 Lincoln Street.
The Kewaunee County Back to School program has made a positive impact in the lives of so many children. The program wouldn’t be possible without the generous support from the community and area businesses.
