NORTHWOOD — Beginning Aug. 1, the Worth County Development Authority will issue free $75 Back to School gift cards to students living in Worth County.

The gift cards may be used at Walmart for school supplies first, then for other needs the student may have, such as shoes or clothing. Cards, whose use will be monitored by both WCDA and Walmart employees, may not be used for any other purpose.

Cards may only be picked up by parents — and only parents — at the  WCDA office, 91 8th St. N., in Northwood, from 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The program ends Aug. 29.

New students, or Worth County resident students who will attend another school through open enrollment, must register at their school first before they may receive the gift cards. 

Parents must have their driver’s license with them showing residency. Parents of home-schooled students must also show residency and bring to the WCDA home school paperwork showing the child’s grade.

It is the second year the WCDA has offered the gift cards. The WCDA oversees and distributes charitable revenues earned by the Diamond Jo Worth Casino.
