FORT MADISON – The Fort Madison Kiwanis Back to School Fair will be held earlier this year, on July 27 from 10 – 12 at the Fort Madison High School.

Forms are available for registration at The Fort Madison Food Pantry.

Students in grades K – 8th may register for a free back pack with most grade level school supplies, and tennis shoes. Haircuts will be available on a first-come, first-served basis. A change this year is that limited informational booths will be in attendance so participants will not have to visit a certain number of booths like in the past.

If you are interested in participating to share what your organization does in our community, please contact Denise Fraise, Information Booth Chair at

As always we are looking for donations to help support our efforts. Our partnership with Payless shoes has ended with the closing of their stores. We are trying to secure a new partnership in the area, however, anticipate a higher cost per shoe.
