Target helps students
Twenty-seven children from The Salvation Army’s Salem, Ore., emergency shelter and the Latino congregation participated in Target’s Back-to-School Shopping Spree on Aug. 10, 2010. Staff at the Salem Target store stocked the food court with nutritious snacks and provided crafts for the children who had finished shopping.
Yuba Sutter, Calif.
Thirty children from The Salvation Army’s transitional living facility and The Depot Family Crisis Center in Marysville, Calif.—both ministries of the Yuba Sutter Corps—participated in the Target Back-to-School event in August 2010. Two stretch limousines, donated by Five Starr Limousine, picked up the kids and brought them back afterwards. Because of great planning and execution by staff, volunteers and the children, they completed their shopping in less than 90 minutes.
Captains Thomas and Kimberly Stambaugh are Yuba Sutter corps officers.
