LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - An organization that's been lending a helping hand to the community for a century is getting some special recognition.

Mayor Tim Kabat issued a proclamation Tuesday at City Hall recognizing National Salvation Army Week.

The mayor says the Salvation Army has had a presence in La Crosse for the past 100 years.

In that time, the organization has played an important role in helping the city address a number of issues, including homelessness.

"The services that they offer, you know, both kind of that immediate need for emergency shelter but also partnerships that we're trying to work on and expand to try to deal with some of the root causes of homelessness and some of those other financial difficulties," said Mayor Tim Kabat.

The mayor says the city couldn't address things like homelessness on its own without the help of organizations like the Salvation Army.

As we've reported, the Salvation Army is working with the city to help the residents of tent city find more permanent housing options.
