Join me for this Fabulous Event sponsored by the Salvation Army and Target. I have done this event for the past 5-10 years and love it. We will meet at Target in Midway at 8am sharp.

Basically a few bus loads of kids will be coming from the Salvation Army to Target. We will either pair up or go solo with one child. Our goal is to help them shop for back to school clothing. We will get a list of what they need. We will have a certain amount of money to help them shop.

Here is a description of the event from the Salvation Army's website:

"Each year hundreds of children go to school unprepared to learn. The Salvation Army is determined to help families in need by providing back-to-school clothes through the Leaders Launching Learners program. On Thursday, August 9, we need volunteers to escort children through the store, assist in selecting clothes, and track the cost of the items to keep it within the $80 budget. Volunteers should be 16 or older. The date and time for all locations is Thursday, August 9, 8 a.m. – 10 a.m."

We will be doing this event with my other meetup group - Out and About in St. Paul.

The Salvation Army has other locations throughout the metro and you can email Jennie (Salvation Army Volunteer Coordinator) at [masked] for more information on those locations.

Otherwise when you RSVP here, please include your email address (after you RSVP you will be asked for it) along with your full name so that I can pass it onto Jennie to register you.

See you there! Bring a calculator if you have one. :)
