Volunteers Needed for Soroptimist Kidz on Target

I still need about 40 volunteers for Kidz on Target. It is next Saturday the 6th of August. Your help is very much appreciated. This is a wonderful event where underprivileged children get $100 worth of back-to-school clothes/shoes at the Target in Pittsburg.

Each child goes shopping with an adult volunteer shopper from 7 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. (before the store opens) for tops, pants, uniforms, shoes, etc. Having new clothes for the first day of school is a big boost for kids whose families may not be able to afford them. A new backpack with school supplies also helps them start the year off right.

The wonderful Soroptimists of Pittsburg have worked SO hard to make this a reality for 100 local elementary/middle students. I help as a volunteer shopper every year and look forward to it. The 7 year old boy I shopped with happily exclaimed, “This is the BEST day of my whole life!” as he left the store with his new “purchases.”

This year’s event is coming up fast this Sat. August 6th, MORE adult shoppers are still needed. This allows for one adult to give their full attention to one child. PLEASE help us shop if you can. You’ll be glad you did. Volunteers need to be at Target in Pittsburg at 6:30 am. THANKS in advance.

Just email me with your name, address and your phone info to doris@dorisbedford.com.
