Volunteers teamed up with kids Tuesday morning in Burbank and Glendale to help them buy new shoes, clothes and supplies for school at Target.
The fourth annual shopping spree at the Empire Center was part of a partnership between Target and the Salvation Army, for which the national retailer gives $1 million in gift cards for 12,000 children and teens.
Each participant was given an $80 gift card to spend in one hour with Disney employees and members of Burbank Sunrise Rotary and Noon Kiwanis.
Lt. Kari Rudd of the Burbank Salvation Army said parents are kept from the event so the children are free to “get what they want, what they like.”
Disney employee Cindy Lopez helped 8-year-old Mason Tovar find the right pair of tan cargo shorts to go with bright orange and green T-shirts he picked out.
