As kids gear up to go back to school, the Salvation Army Colorado Springs wants to help families save a few dollars.
The organization is holding its annual back to school shopping spree on August 14th at JcPenny Citadel Mall. 100 kids in need will each receive $100 to shop for new school clothes, shoes, and other needed items for the upcoming school year.
“I decided to start raising funds for the shopping spree because I felt like there are a bunch of kids who aren’t able to buy clothes and this is an opportunity for them to buy clothes,” said Klipp.
The ten-year-old has been spending the last couple of weeks of summer trying to raise funds for the event.
“I’ve raised $1,200, and I’m trying to raise $5,000. I’m just trying to do what God told me to do. I got a feeling to do it because people will need it more than me,” said Klipp. “It brings me joy doing this because I’ve always liked fundraising for people. — Source
