Sending a child to school in the Fall is exciting, nerve-wrecking, and expensive. For some families, sending a child back to school can cause financial strain on a household budget; especially after recent events around the world.

The Salvation Army of Kerrville has “Registration” for families who need assistance to send their children back to school for the 2020-21 school year.

Registration will take place at the Salvation Army Kroc Center Chapel, located at 201 Holdsworth Dr., June 22-26 from 9 a.m. to noon.

To qualify, child(ren) must be enrolled in a Kerr County school (public or private) in grades pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade.

To register, parent/guardian will need to bring and provide photo I.D., proof of address, proof of Kerr County residence, current SNAP (food stamps) letter, and proof of enrollment in school. Enrollment in school can be provided with last report card or confirmation of enrollment in a Kerr County school. Questions on how to register, please contact 257-3620.

Individuals and/or businesses interested in “adopting” buses to help local families, can do so by visiting the Salvation Army Kerrville Kroc Center, located at 201 Holdsworth Dr., or contact 315-5762.
