Ready Set School needs your help. Winona County families are facing unprecedented financial and emotional losses, and our local nonprofit is seeing the impact of this burden firsthand. Ready Set School works to ensure all eligible K-12 students in Winona County have the basic and necessary supplies and clothing for school. Our application period for the 2020-2021 school year has wrapped, and we will now be assisting more than 1,100 Winona County students; this is a 36.7% increase from 2019.
In addition to the large increase of voucher requests, nearly all of Ready Set School’s annual fundraising events were cancelled due to the stay-at-home order in Minnesota.
Learning—whether digital or in person—is paramount to the success of our Winona County students, and our community. These important vouchers will go out to families in July. Donations are needed now through June 20 to help provide direct assistance to these families in need.
Please consider donating to Ready Set School during this time. You can mail a donation to 51 East 4th Street, Suite 404, Winona, MN 55987 or donate online: www.givemn.org/story/Mmvy1f.
