La Crosse SOUP donors vote for program to financially benefit those leaving jail
LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) — The La Crosse community came together Tuesday night, looking for another innovative way to improve our area.
La Crosse SOUP hosted its second event of the year. For a $5 donation, people got a cup of soup and a vote for their favorite community proposal.
New to Tuesday’s event, Summit Elementary School hosted a bake sale, Turtle Stack Brewery donated beer, and food trucks hosted their own fundraisers, all to benefit the 1 winning idea out of 3 proposals.
“We’re really excited. There was a great turnout in response for tonight. The food trucks I think are bringing in a lot of people and a lot of excitement. In the end, we’ll have a couple thousand dollars that will go to a project that makes La Crosse better,” said La Crosse SOUP Director Josh Court.
Tuesday’s SOUP donors voted for Barrier Busters, a program to financially help those leaving jail as they search for jobs.
