Rebecca Helms says they work with area school counselors from 20 local schools to find needy students and then they match those students up with a sponsor from the community. It could be an individual, a company or anyone who's willing to help. each child is allowed to spend $75 to purchase clothes, shoes, hats and gloves at Walmart.
Helms says they're going shopping on Saturday December 14 and sponsors are welcome to attend. If you're interested in sponsoring a child contact Lt. Rebecka Helms at the Yakima Salvation Army at 823-1813.
