Donations of school supplies needed for kids in the Coulee Region

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – Local kids are in need of your help.

Did you know that 750 students in our area can’t afford back to school supplies?

The Coulee Region Back2School program, with help from La Crosse County Salvation Army and other local organizations, are asking community members for donations of backpacks, folders, and other supplies to help these kids.

Contributing to this cause goes a long way.

“For a lot of families money is tight, where you’re choosing between getting school supplies, getting new clothes, or feeding your family for the next month or so,” said Alex Riley of the Salvation Army.

Riley also said after last weekend’s ‘Stuff the Bus’ campaign, they are one-third of the way to their goal.

To get involved, call the Salvation Army at (608) 782-6126.
