Kan Cool for School

We are a non-profit organization that holds a school supply giveaway event annually for economically disadvantaged children (1,200+) in Manitowoc County. In addition, we stock area schools with supplies and winter wear items for distribution to children in need.

St James was one of the founding members of Kan Cool and St. James members continue to serve on the board of directors of Kan Cool, donate supplies, and donate time and talent throughout the year to make the annual event run smoothly.
