Thank you, KCPS Summerfest Volunteers!

Five photographs of people packing clear backpacks with school supplies and handing them out to people in cars.

KCPS staff and community volunteers spent Saturday, Aug. 13, 2022, distributing backpacks and school supplies to students. Together, we were able to pass out more than 4,500 backpacks! Check out the full photo album on Flickr.
