Kiwanis to host Clothe a Child

On Aug. 4, Gold Country Kiwanis members will gather in front of Kmart at 6:30 a.m. to go on a shopping spree with local children whose families cannot provide them with adequate clothes.

The service club escorts each child into the store to select new shoes, pajamas, underwear, warm outerwear and comfortable outfits to begin the school year. After shopping each child gets to pick a new backpack, fully loaded with school supplies.

Kiwanis spends $125 per child on this back-to-school project.

If you wish to sponsor one or more children, and maybe even take one shopping, email jwestmore@sb or mail a check to Gold Country Kiwanis at P. O. Box 721, Grass Valley, CA 94945.
