From USD 470: As part of KanPak’s larger effort to provide backpacks and school supplies to elementary children across the county, GSF Foundation donated 40 backpacks to help establish the PreK “Book Backpack” program. The USD 470 Early Literacy Initiative filled the backpacks with dozens of developmentally appropriate and bilingual books. Through this program, families with a preschooler can check out Book Backpacks from Head Start Family Service advocates. KanPak was also the first organization to volunteer to sponsor a Little Free Library in the Ark City Community.
