‘Steppin’ Out in Pink’ donates backpacks, water bottles to School District of La Crosse

About 200 items were donated from the Gundersen Medical Foundation

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WKBT) – ‘Steppin’ Out in Pink’ is stepping up for kids in our area.

Staff from the Gundersen Medical Foundation stopped by the La Crosse School District’s Hogan Administration Building Tuesday to drop off backpacks and water bottles for students.

The donation will help to keep kids safe.

“With COVID you can’t have water fountains in use. So students are being required to bring water bottles. So we just wanted to provide, we had it on hand,” said Gundersen Health System special events coordinator Tia Sneath.

More than 130 backpacks and more than 70 water bottles were donated.
