Ringing the bell of the little red school house may be a thing of the past, but being prepared to start school with all supplies necessary for a successful year is not. Once again, the Sharing Center invites individuals, churches, civic organizations, and local businesses to participate in its Back-to-School campaign efforts to make sure every young person West of the I will achieve this goal.

Several creative and caring ways are available for you to become a Sharing Center sponsor:

  • You can go store-to-store shopping the sales for school supplies.
  • You can submit a monetary donation
  • You can purchase a voucher in the amount of $40 for a school pack and/or a voucher in the amount of $20 for shoes.
  • You might want to adopt a student yourself and provide a complete set of school supplies and shoes.

As in previous years, the center has secured grade-level lists from all schools in Western Kenosha County and is waiting for you to stop in for a list or call for additional details. You may contact The Sharing Center at 997-0783 or visit the website at The Sharing Center is located just north of Highway 50, at 7001 236th Ave.,  next to the municipal building in Paddock Lake.
