When students in the head back to school Monday, many will have the necessary school supplies to start the year right.
Last Tuesday, students selected by were treated to an $80 back-to-school shopping spree at the local on El Camino Real. Volunteers from Wells Fargo acted as personal shoppers for the students.
“The Target School Spree is a great opportunity to help students in need prepare for the new school year,” said Laysha Ward, President of Target’s Community Relations. “Each year, we look forward to teaming up with The Salvation Army to provide students with the back-to-school supplies they need to have a successful school year and stay on the path to graduation.”
As part the Target School Spree program, Target awarded all 40 of The Salvation Army Divisions nationwide a total of $960,000 worth of Target gift cards.
