Kids get ready for school with shopping spree


It’s almost time for kids to go back to school!  Thursday, some kids in Texarkana went shopping to get ready.

Dozens of kids were treated to a shopping spree at Academy Sports + Outdoors.  The event is a partnership between the Salvation Army of Texarkana and the store. 

Each child was excited to receive a hundred dollars in store credit to get what they need for school.  Nicole Johnson said, “I’m shopping for a backpack and light up shoes!”  Emanuel Bender added, “It’s fun to shop with my friends because we can help pick stuff out”

Academy Spokesman Michael Churchill said, “It’s just a wonderful experience for our associates as well.”
