Ready Set Learn Back to School is a program that is offering backpacks and school supplies to qualified recipients. It started in 2007, and has grown ever since. In the 2016 school year we were able to serve approximately 345 kids, helping prepare them with school supplies for the upcoming year. We now have a committee of 10 dedicated individuals from the community that our passionate about making this continue to strive. We run on donations from the community, businesses, organizations, and individuals. We wouldn’t be able to make it without these generous donations.
We are accepting donations now through July 31 both at St. John’s and at the Kasson ShopKo.
Items needed include:
- Backpacks – Large
- Glue Sticks – Small
- 2 – Pocket Folders (Blue, Green, Red, Yellow)
