ChildSpree still need volunteers

Ridgecrest’s annual ChildSpree event will begin at 9 a.m. this Saturday, Aug. 11.

This year 27 local children will be treated to a shopping spree for back-to-school clothes and shoes at Walmart. Kiwanis Club is sponsoring the children, and Walmart is giving a 10 percent discount to them all.

About seven more adult volunteers are needed to accompany the children to help with their shopping. McDonald’s will donate breakfast packs to all the children.

“I have been doing this event with Kiwanis for 15 years,” said Yolanda Dahms. “Love them, great people.”

To volunteer, call Dahms at 760-382-3167.
