Adults willing to partner one-on-one with children doing back-to-school shopping are needed for a Salvation-Army-sponsored event in Holland. The Back to School Shopping Spree is planned for Thursday, August 15, from 8 to 10 a.m. Volunteers will accompany a child through the store, helping them select clothing and school supplies they will need for the year.

Volunteer requirements: Because of the direct contact with children, paperwork for a background check must be submitted by this Friday, August 9. And volunteers are asked to attend a one-hour training session, either Monday, August 12, at 5:30 p.m. or Tuesday, August 13, at 10 a.m.

To volunteer: Contact Laura Liu, the volunteer coordinator for Salvation Army in Holland, at (616) 392 4461 extension 103 or laura_liu@usc.salvationarmy.org.
