“KAN Cool for School” & “Soles for Souls”

Parents or guardians of children, 4K through 9th grade, must bring a Signed Referral Form with each child’s name from their school or a participating agency to Jefferson Elementary School, 1415 Division St, Manitowoc on Saturday, August 18, between the hours of 8:00 AM and 12:00 noon to receive a free backpack and school supplies. Your child may also qualify for a shoe coupon provided by the “Soles for Souls” program to be used at Walmart (while supplies last).

“KAN Cool for School” is a non-profit organization providing school supplies, other necessities, and services to low income students in Manitowoc County. Our vision is to assure that every child in Manitowoc County has the school supplies and other necessities required for success in school. It is a collaborative effort of The Golden K Kiwanis, Manitowoc Optimist Club, Manitowoc Sunrise Rotary Club, The Salvation Army, and St James Episcopal Church Outreach. “Soles for Souls” is promoted and supported by businesses, service and charitable organizations, and churches within our community.
