As much as it always hurt to say goodbye to summer, the beginning of the new school year was always a little exciting. New clothes, new crayons, new friendships! But for some kids, returning to school can be a reminder of what they don’t have.

Target Helps Salvation Army Youth Get Ready for Back-to-School

Tuesday, July 26, 2011

It may be the middle of summer, but more than 12,000 students today are actually excited to start school again in the fall!

That’s because Target stores across the country treated them to an amazing Back-to-School-Spree with the help of The Salvation Army this morning. The kids were each given an $80 Target Gift Card to choose their favorite school supplies, clothes, and other necessities for the upcoming academic year.

For some children, this is the first time they’ve ever had brand new school materials. For many, they have a new confidence knowing they don’t have to worry about being picked on or falling behind due to a lack of supplies. For all, the shopping event was a lot of fun!

We want to wish a huge THANKS to our partner Target for their $1 million donation that is supporting the education and development of thousands of Salvation Army youth program participants. Also, to our many volunteer chaperones who helped today, you rock!
