MILWAUKEE, Wisc. — With the school year fast approaching, one local organization hopes to get kids started on the right foot.

On Wednesday, August 24, Wellpoint Care Network’s backyard on West Capitol Drive will transform, welcoming kids and their families to its Back-to-School Bash.

“We are kind of a center point for a lot of different groups, whether it’s different races, different ages, different experiences,” said Alex Williams, Director of Community Engagement, Wellpoint Care Network.

“We would love to serve as an organization that can bring together people from different communities to find out and to understand what everybody from the community needs.”
