Each year United Way of the Kearney Area comes together with the Dobytown Kiwanis to provide school supplies to more than 500 hundred area students through the Back-2-School Campaign. Back-2-School Link is a United Way program that collects and distributes school supplies for eligible students from Pre-school through 12th grade in our six county region.
Several organizations offer their support of the program by purchasing the supplies needed. Dobytown Kiwanis, Noon Kiwanis, Golden K Kiwanis and Good Samaritan Hospital Pediatrics Department have all contributed to the success of this program.
