Back To School 2019

How do you stuff a bus? And why would we want to? Because OVER 60% of Geary County public school students come from low-income families who often struggle to provide the supplies they need to succeed in school.

School will be starting before we know it, and parents will begin making tough choices about what they can afford. Help United Way of Junction City/Geary County gather supplies now to send kids back to school equipped to learn.

Adopt-A-Back Pack Rules

1. Students MUST attend school in USD 475, St. Xavier.

2. Applications must come through United Way of Junction City/Geary County for approval.  Filling out an application does not guarantee a backpack.

3. This is not first come/first serve.


General backpacks (may only be a backpack depending on supplies) are available.  We will still need the child's name, boy/girl, grade, and school attending.  This is only for Geary County students.
