The Salvation Army Ray & Joan Kroc Center is proud to announce its 10th annual Operation Clothe a Child.
Every year, as a way to partner with families in our community The Salvation Army Kroc Center’s Operation Clothe a Child program takes more than 150 elementary students on a special shopping spree for winter clothing. This program is made possible by generous donations from the community.
How the Event Works: Students will start off with a delicious meal and then they will be transported to Walmart where volunteers will help the students spend $100 on brand new clothing of their choice—including coats, pants, shirts or whatever is needed the most. The goal is not only to outfit kids with cold weather attire but to also give them an opportunity to have fun, make new friends, and express their own personal style.
Parents with children in the grades 1–5 are encouraged to submit an application for their children to be awarded a winter shopping spree. By clicking on the button below you will be taken to our online application process. Once finished, we will assess the applications and inform you if you are accepted. Space is limited & applying does not guarantee a shopping spree.
Every year, over 200 community members volunteer their time to help with Clothe a Child. Volunteers are paired with a child and help guide them through the shopping event. It will be an experience that you'll never forget!
