Salvation Army and Target Back-to-School Shopping Spree

By Molly Bruh

On Tuesday, July 16, D.C. United volunteers, with the help of both Target and Salvation Army volunteers, paired up with kids of the Salvation Army’s Social Services program and took them back-to-school shopping at Target. Each kid received an $80 gift card, and each volunteer made sure the kids purchased everything needed to start the school year off right. After the shopping spree, all participants enjoyed a late breakfast provided by Target and the Salvation Army DC. The event was a huge success and rewarding for the kids and volunteers alike. 

Among those volunteering was D.C. United Marketing Coordinator Adam Hoyt who shared his experience through a Tweet.
