County Commission Richard Ranzau has a goal of helping students at Urban Prep Academy with back-to-school supplies. Urban Preparatory Academy, located in Northeast Wichita, is a private school and as Comm. Ranzau points out, they receive no taxpayer funding.
The school is expecting an enrollment of 50-60 students this year. They need school supplies based on grade level and backpacks. His goal is to collect enough supplies and back-packs to equip 60 students. The estimated cost of supplies and a back pack per student is $75-$80.
If you can help, make a cash donation to the effort or purchase a back pack and supplies for one or several students, bring the items to Urban Prep at 2821 E. 24th St. N. or call the school at (316) 361-2469.
