BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - The cost of buying clothes, shoes and supplies for the new school year can cost upwards of $700 for the average family.
That's why more than 200 kids were pre-selected to receive the ultimate back-to-school shopping spree at Kohl's on Rosedale Highway. In just a few hours, the store will be filled with families all looking to shop for things they normally wouldn't be able to afford this time of year.
The event is hosted by the Bakersfield 20-30 Club in partnership with Kohl's. Every year, the club raises money to provide less fortunate families around the community with the supplies they need for a new school year.
This Saturday, each child will receive a back pack full of supplies as well as a $100 gift card to Kohl's. All the children who will be shopping, will be doing so with volunteers from charities around the community.
