Many of the families in the West Allis West Milwaukee School District live near or below the Federal poverty level. Fifty-seven percent  of the students qualifying for free or reduced-priced lunches. Many children start the school year without the necessary supplies and tools to be successful. For the past three years, the Rotary Club West Allis has filled 125 backpacks with the supplies from the teachers' list for the students in K4 through 5th grade. Students with the greatest need are identified by school counselors and principles and given a free backpack filled with the school supplies needed for the year. This year in response to requests by school personnel, personal hygiene products were included in the back pack. In addition to the School District, the Rotary Club West Allis partnered with a local dental office, which donated toothbrushes, tooth paste and floss for the back packs. The West Allis Fire Department picked up the backpacks and delivered them to the schools in one of their firetrucks.
