Target Back-to-School Shopping Spree
Yesterday, we had the privilege to partner with Target for another year of back-to-school shopping with their annual Back-to-School Shopping Spree! Target provides The Salvation Army with gift cards worth $81 to take Hawaii’s keiki shopping for much-needed school supplies for the upcoming school year!
When the kids arrived at the Salt Lake store, their smiles were big and bright. With the help of our volunteers, we were able to take 100 kids around the store to purchase supplies and clothing for the upcoming school year. Kids were able to purchase backpacks, binders, pens – anything they may have needed for school. And it was a lot more than just buying supplies – the kids and volunteers all had a lot fun working together to find the perfect supplies to start the school year off right.
We would like to thank Target for partnering with us to provide this much-needed and appreciated event for our keiki! For more pictures of the event, check out our Facebook page!
