Back 2 School Fund


Parents who struggle to put food on the table may often be challenged to provide their children with the necessary school supplies they need for academic success.

This summer, you can be part of a community wide collaboration by joining with The Salvation Army, Ballard Community Services, ECKAN , The United Way, Lawrence Rotary Club, Hallmark, First United Methodist Church, Great Plains Media and the Douglas County Community Foundation to make sure all our kids have the school supplies they need for academic success.
