Elementary School Clothe A Child Shopping Spree | Ages 6–10
Friday, December 2, 5:30–8pm & Wednesday, December 7, 5:30–8pm
Deadline to apply is Sunday, November 27

 

About the Program
Every year, as a way to partner with families in our community The Salvation Army Kroc Center’s Operation Clothe a Child program takes local elementary & middle school students on a special shopping spree for fall & winter clothing. This program is made possible by generous donations from the community.

Our main goal is to support local children physically, socially, and spiritually by providing food, needed clothing items, fellowship, and sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with them. But how can we truly be supporting the children if we are not involving their parents/guardians? This year, with that question in mind, we have adjusted a crucial aspect of this program. Instead of pairing children up with a volunteer, we are going to pair them up with a parent/guardian to give them a special one-on-one night out together.

The Event Timeline
• 5–5:15pm: Volunteer meeting at The Kroc Center 
• 5:15–5:30pm: Parent/Guardian and kid check in 
• 5:30–6:10pm: Food and Fellowship! Icebreakers and games between the volunteers and families
• 6:10–6:25pm: Welcome & Gospel Message followed by prayer
• 6:25–6:40pm: We will all break out and meet back up at Target!
• 6:40–7:50pm: Volunteers and families will reconnect and begin shopping
• 7:50–8pm: Event will begin to wrap up as families check out and head home for the evening

How You Can Help

Volunteer to Shop with Families
Every year, over 200 community members volunteer their time to help with Clothe a Child. In the past, volunteers were paired with a child helping guide them through the shopping event from start to finish. This year we are adjusting our program a bit and pairing up a single volunteer with three families, as a parent/guardian will attend for each child. Changing our program in this way allows our volunteers to not only remain a key part of the evening, but also gives the volunteer a chance to help navigate Target in a way that allows the families to have that special one on one time during the event. Volunteering for a night of Clothe a Child will truly be an experience that you'll never forget!
