Salvation Army of La Crosse's Back 2 School program open for registration

Program offers school supplies for local families

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) - The start of the new school year may be a couple of months away, but the local Salvation Army's Back to School program is open for registrations.

The program, put on by both the Salvation Army and Catholic Charities, provides school supplies for low income families in our area. It provides up to 500 families with school essentials like backpacks, clothes, and school supplies.

"Sometimes school supplies can be very expensive, especially when you look at the long list of things that kids need nowadays, so for us to be able to help provide that, it's honestly priceless,” said Salvation Army of La Crosse Public Relations Coordinator Nick Ragner.

The deadline to apply is August 3, and supplies will be handed out on August 16.

You register for the Back to School program at the Salvation Army’s website.
