On Saturday, July 27, 2024, The Salvation Army will partner with the JCPenney at Spectrum Mall to host the Back-to-School Child Spree, our annual shopping program designed for disadvantaged children in Tucson. This year’s event will host 150 less-fortunate youth, ranging in age from Kindergarten to 12th grade. Each child will receive a $150 JCPenney gift card for new clothing and shoes, as well as a new, sturdy backpack filled with essential school supplies!

We're currently seeking volunteers and volunteer groups who are willing to donate their time to accompany students as they shop and help them make wise buying decisions. For only a few hours of your time, you can build a positive experience for a child that will last a lifetime!
