Target & Salvation Army Help Kids-In-Need With School Supplies

The Salvation Army partnered together with Target to help deserving students buy back-to-school items.

In the 2nd Annual Back-To-School Shopping Spree, 12 kids from Wichita Falls were able to walk around Target Tuesday and pick out the items they needed for the upcoming school year, like pens, paper, and a backpack. When they got to the checkout, they were given an $80 Target gift card to foot the bill.

Newschannel 6 spoke with Cpt. Bill Shafer, the head of the Wichita Falls Salvation Army, at the event, and he told us just how grateful the organization is to Target for helping out the local students in need. "We are grateful for Target for allowing the Salvation Army to be a part of this and it's just a blessing that they get to come and help our children."

The Target Corporation says this is one way the business acts locally to help kids learn and schools teach, paving the path to graduation. All 40 of the Salvation Army Divisions nationwide were asked to participate in Target's shopping spree program.
