WICHITA FALLS, TX (KAUZ) - 30 children were given a back-to-school shopping spree at Academy Sports & Outdoors on Tuesday.

The event, Adopt-A-box, is an annual shopping spree where each child receives a $100 Academy gift card to use towards athletic apparel, backpacks, shoes and other school necessities.

This program is in its eighth year and has grown to include more than 100 similar events benefiting more than 3,000 kids throughout the Southeast and the Midwest United States.

Many Academy employees could be seen assisting parents and children making decisions on shoes and clothes.
