It’s Back-to-School Shopping Time in Chattanooga!

The Target School Spree is off to a great start!

The Salvation Army Chattanooga is one of many locations partnering with generous retailer Target to provide local children in need with all of the supplies, backpacks and clothing they need for a successful year of school.

Yesterday, 30 area kids received an $80 gift card and a volunteer or Salvation Army employee to guide them through the shopping experience. We’re so thankful for the many volunteers who help us with our back-to-school initiatives every summer!

Have you ever thought about volunteering with children? We would love for your help! Click here to find contact info for your local Salvation Army.
