The Contact Center will be taking applications for families with children in need of a back pack for the coming school year, running from Aug. 1-19.

Last year, 122 children were provided a voucher for a back pack. Funding for this project is provided by local donations.

This year, the Contact Center will be supplying the back packs for grades K-8. Families must come to the Contact Center office located in the County Government Center lower level. Families must have an active SNAP card to be eligible.

Any donations to this project would be greatly appreciated and can be sent to the Contact Center, 321 West 3rd Street, Suite B02, Yankton, SD 57078.
