12th Annual Back-to-School Children’s Shopping Spree back in action. Long Beach Junior Chamber takes low-income kids shopping on Saturday, August 19th.

August 17, 2006 (Long Beach, CA)—The Long Beach Junior Chamber (LBJC) is gearing up for its 12th Annual Back-to-School Children’s Shopping Spree, which looks to be the largest yet. This year low-income children, selected by the Boys and Girls Clubs of Long Beach, will be taken on a shopping spree for school supplies and school uniforms. The event will be at Target in the Los Altos Shopping Center from 7am to 9am on Saturday, August 19th. “We are so excited to be able to take these kids shopping for school supplies and school uniforms, thanks to the hard work of our committee,” said Randy Terrell, LBJC VP of Community Development. “This event is the most rewarding of any that we perform all year.” Before the children go shopping, they will be treated to a free pancake breakfast provided by Long Beach Firefighters, in addition to other fun activities. At 8 am, the children will be teamed up with a Junior Chamber member and given $100 gift cards to purchase school items like uniforms, shoes, and other essentials. In addition to the gift cards, the children will be receiving backpacks later in the week, and Target is providing one free school uniform shirt per child. The Children’s Shopping Spree is a nationwide event hosted by hundreds of Junior Chamber chapters across the U.S. The Long Beach chapter helped found the event 12 years ago. The Long Beach Junior Chamber is a leadership and civic organization for individuals aged 21 to 40. Every year, in addition to monthly social, civic, and training events, the Long Beach Junior Chamber hosts the Miss Long Beach Pageant, Children’s Shopping Spree, and a Bachelor Auction to raise money for cancer aid and education You can find out more information about the Long Beach Junior Chamber by visiting www.lbjuniorchamber.org.
