Kids First Fund

The purpose of the Kids First fund is to provide funding for students in Muscatine County who have a need as identified by school employees. Some of the things the Kids First fund has covered are shoes, clothing, gas for college visits, school supplies, etc.

Some Kids First Fund Facts:
