      2018 Kidz on Target - Volunteer Sign-ups

      ***Soroptimist International of Pittsburg is not capable of signing your child up for services/participate in this event.  Social services of Contra Costa County provides us (Soroptimist) with a list of the children who will benefit from Kidz on Target. This is to sign up to volunteer on the day of the event. *** ALL VOLUNTEERS MUST: BE AT LEAST 21 YEARS OF AGE BE PREPARED TO SIGN LIABILITY RELEASE FORM UPON ARRIVAL HAVE A VALID EMAIL ADDRESS Soroptimist International of Pittsburg is excited to announce Kidz on Target is back for its 22nd year!  This annual back-to-school event is co-sponsored by Target at Century Plaza in Pittsburg.  True to its original mission of helping underprivileged children prepare for the new school year by providing each child with $150 worth of clothing, shoes, a backpack filled with school supplies and a book, this event offers something more. This shopping experience gives the children a feeling of confidence which promotes higher self esteem, allowing them to start school on a positive note.  Here are a few instructions for our event. Volunteer shopper check-in time: 5:45am-6:00am  Please line up outside of the store on the left side.  This is much earlier than past years.  For better security and for the safety of the children our goal is to have our shopping completed before the store opens to the general public (8am).   Coffee will be provided for our volunteers  At check-in you'll be provided with: a name tag, add’l instructions, your child's clothing and shoe sizes, and a calculator to keep track of spending during shopping (The child may keep the calculator after the shopping is over.) Flow of event: 1)   Children select a backpack and book inside store   2)      Shop -  Only select clothing, shoes, undergarments, etc - No toys, games, or school supplies should be purchased.  Since we have limited time to shop and for privacy issues, children will not be able to try items on.  Please use calculator provided to keep a running tab of total-- please do not exceed $130 (we must account for tax)  3)      Check out - a Soroptimist representative will meet you at the checkstand to provide payment for the child.   4)      Volunteer shopper escorts child to check out table outside and wait for parent to pick up. Thank you again for your help with our project.  We couldn't do it without the help and generosity of all of you! See you bright and early on Saturday, August 5, 2017!
