Back 2 School link

backpack program

Dobytown Kiwanis signature Event held in early August. Club members and

the community get together to pack school supplies into new backpacks

provided by the NE-IA District Foundation. In 2017 1,100 backpacks

were distributed through the Kearney Area United Way.

Since 1993 Dobytown Kiwanis has provided Backpacks and school supplies for less fortunate kids in the Kearney Area. In teaming up with the United Way "Back 2 School Link" has become an extremely important project to get kids off to school ready to learn.

This year a total of 1,100 backpacks with school supplies were given out to  area children at the start of the new school year.

Approximately 10,000 students have received backpacks of school supplies since the projects inception.
