#KOKind #KOmmunity: Keystone Oaks launches community assistance program

It goes without saying that COVID-19 has had a tremendous impact on our community and has negatively affected many individuals and families. For those in the Keystone Oaks School District, we are in this together, and we will get through this unprecedented time as one #KOmmunity. 

To best determine how we can help one another, we have created a community support hub. This is a place where families can come to seek help or to offer assistance to others. Whether you need food, supplies, personal connections, or other types of assistance, we would like to help by connecting you with someone in the community who can offer you support. 

If you would like to donate time and/or resources, please fill out the “I Want to Help” form below. 

If you are in need of resources and/or assistance, please fill out the “I Need Help” form below.
