Kiwanis Club of Redlands-Noon, Kiwanis Club of San Bernardino and Redlands Elks Lodge paid for the youth to each get $100 worth of clothes, shoes, socks and other essentials at Kohl’s in Redlands. A service club volunteer was paired with each young person and accompanied them around the store.

In addition to the shopping spree, each child and teen got a backpack filled with school supplies.

“The organizations that participate this event make sure that our members who need it most are prepared for a successful school year,” said Club senior vice president Mark Davis. “We’re grateful for their service to local kids.”
