Back2School, 2022

Aug 31, 2022 | by Willow

The Salvation Army of La Crosse County has been reflecting on the positive engagements and our efforts to empower the youth of our community. The Salvation Army of La Crosse County had another year of involvement in the Back2School program. The Back2School program is a supplemental program that aids families, students, and teachers in providing school supplies; notebooks, folders, crayons, pencils, scissors, glue, and more.

This program is in partnership with many organizations throughout the community. The Salvation Army aided in donations and volunteer power. We provided over 300 backpacks and were a drop off location for community members to donate supplies. We had 13 volunteers representing The Salvation Army, totaling 39 hours. They helped sort, organize, and count the donations and supplies. They also helped on distribution days for the Back2School events, helping families through the lines of supplies. Resource tables were also available at the events, allowing families and students to learn about the helpful tools throughout the community. The Salvation Army was a resource to the community at two events, providing brochures, information, and candy!

Over 166 families and 423 students were assisted in this program.
