Every year, the Elk Grove Optimist Club partners with the Student Support Centers at Elk Grove Unified School District, a host of community volunteers and partners, and Elk Grove Kohl's. At this event 100 students are partnered with volunteer chaperones to shop for school clothes and shoes at Kohl's. They are then provided with hair cuts, breakfast, vision testing and glasses, back-packs and schools supplies, and much more!!! It is amazing to see all the smiles on the kids faces!!!
They also can receive free booster car seats, safety helmets, fact painting & tattoos, CHP safety tips, etc.
Vendors who participate are: California Highway Patrol, Chick-fil-A, Elk Grove Lions, Paula Maita & Co. Elk Grove Police Department, Great Clips, Kohl"s, UC Davis Trauma Prevention, Safe Kids Greater Sacramento, Soroptimist of Elk Grove, Elk Grove Optimist Club, and Trader Joe's.
Thank you to all our volunteers and staff!!!
This is a great example of the community coming together to provide smiles on kids faces!
