Backpack Program 2017 -2018

You are here

We are busy planning the 2017-2018 Backpack Project for this year.  Volunteers are needed!  Contact our office at 507-354-6512 to find out how you can help.  
 
Once again the United Way of the Brown County Area will offer free backpacks filled with school supplies for the 2017-2018 school year.  We know the challenges facing families today and the United Way would like to help. Last year, about 500 backpacks filled with age appropriate school supplies were distributed throughout Brown County. We partner with generous local companies, organizations and individuals who understand the need to give back and make sure all kids start school off ready to learn.
