In Temecula, California, hundreds of low-income kids did some back-to-school shopping -- free of charge -- thanks to JCPenney and the Salvation Army.
The retail store and the charity group got together again this year to let students from kindergarten through high school work their way through the store, with each student spending $125 on clothes and shoes -- free of charge.
The kids were excited, with many of them showing up at 6 a.m.
And, as they have in previous years, the students were helped during this shopping spree by volunteers, who made sure the students got exactly what they needed to ensure the new school year would be a success.
Thanks to JCPenney and the Salvation Army, 200 children in Southern California are as ready as possible to learn, grow and achieve.
