The Susanville Salvation Army’s Back to School program came to a very successful close on Saturday after providing qualified applicants with backpacks, school supplies, haircuts and a $100 shopping spree for school clothes at Walmart.

“This year we were able to help more students than last year. Sixty-five students were served,” said Salvation Army representative Carla McDonald.

“The shopping spree was a great success with the help of amazing volunteers, including the Lassen County Court. Miss Lassen County and her court represented the county with dignity, poise and hearts that cared for each person they shopped with. We love our county and our people!”

“It was super special and heartwarming to see the kids’ eyes light up as they were able to pick out their own clothes for school,” said Ambassadress of Susanville EmmaLee Rotlisberger. I’m proud to live in a community that provides these opportunities for local students.”

Princess Georgia Bennett called the event an amazing experience. “The kids were all so genuinely happy. I wish I could have stayed longer. I’m so glad our community does it and I’m so happy I can be a part of it.”

Bennett said she hopes that more kids can find out about it and experience it as well.

Miss Lassen County Alliyah Yerington also described the back-to-school program as ‘amazing’. Yerington said, “I’m so thankful we were given the opportunity to help make a difference for the students we were partnered with.”
