VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Target Shopping Spree

July 27, 2012

9 to 11am

 For the third year Target and The Salvation Army are partnering together for a back to school shopping spree.  Target is providing 68 children in our service area the opportunity to receive an $80.00 gift card for back to school clothes and supplies. 

Thus meaning we supply the children in need and the volunteers to assist them in shopping.

 Following is the list of our minimum volunteer needs:

6 volunteers:  Target 1200 E 2nd Street, Edmond, 73034

12 volunteers:  Target 800 SW 44th Street, OKC, 73109

12 volunteers:  Target 5400 N May, OKC, 73112

12 volunteers:  Target 1400 24th Ave NW, Norman, 73069

 We will need you to plan on dedicating at least 4 hours for this project with your travel time.  The only way we can participate is by having enough volunteers to support this worthy event.

 If this is the first year for you to take part in this event there is an orientation that you need to attend.  Please choose one of the following sessions to attend.

Tuesday, July 10th 9 to 11

Thursday, July 12h 9 to 11

PLEASE RSVP by Friday, June 29th.

If you have any questions or would like to volunteer please be in touch with Lois Green at 246-1101 or 323-8846.
