Thanks to Kohl’s, students in 4-year-old kindergarten in Milwaukee Public Schools will each receive a free backpack with school supplies. Nearly 200 Kohl’s human resources associates volunteered to pack 10,000 backpacks that will be distributed to students during the first week of school.
Kohl’s employees filled backpacks with crayons, pencils, glue sticks, folders and more during the large-scale event. The backpacks come in an assortment of colors. School supplies will help ensure that all children have the tools they need to succeed in school, and will reduce the need for teachers to pay for materials out of their own pockets.
Families who have not yet enrolled their children for this fall are encouraged to do so as soon as possible. For more information, visit mpsmke.com/enroll or visit one of the district’s Welcome Centers to enroll.
