FORT MYERS, Fla. - With help from Target and The Salvation Army, 30 Southwest Florida students in need got to fill up on all the supplies needed to start a new school year.
The kids were selected because their families already receive help from the Salvation Army, whether its through core programs or the shelter program.
Each child received an $81 Target gift card, and accompanied by a volunteer chaperone, got to select any clothing or supplies essential for school.
This shopping spree is part of a nationwide program, doling out $1 million worth in Target gift cards to 3,000 students in need.
