CCSO, Target Help Kids Get Ready For School

Deputies helped summer campers in East Naples get ready for the upcoming school year during a shopping trip Tuesday.

Kids participating in the Salvation Army summer camp were paired up with deputies from the Collier County Sheriff’s Office, volunteers from the Salvation Army and teachers from Avalon and Veterans Memorial elementary schools during the trip to Super Target, 2415 Tarpon Bay Blvd., Golden Gate. The deputies, teachers and volunteers helped the children pick out back-to-school supplies and clothes , which the students paid for with money they received through a Target grant.

After the group wrapped up with their shopping, the Super Target staff treated everyone to popcorn and drinks.
