On July 28, 2013 Rotaract|SLO and other organizations in San Luis Obispo County teamed up with the United Way of San Luis Obispo County for a rewarding event called KidSpree. In partnering with Kohls, KidsSpree offers assistance to families that might not be able to provide their children with new back-to-school clothes for their children.  Kohls donates a $100 gift card to each child participating in KidSpree.  The children are allowed into the store before it opens for the day and assigned a volunteer.  The volunteers help the children pick out new shoes and clothes and then have breakfast with the children and their families.  This year was the second year that Rotaract | SLO was able to participate in KidSpree as volunteers to go shopping with the kids.  Some of our members say that KidSpree is their favorite event!  Having volunteered the last two years, we hope to participate in the 2014 KidSpree!

2013 Rotaract | SLO Volunteers From Left to Right: Jessica Doneza, Marissa, Jessica Riccio, Maggie McGrath, Celine Dibernardo, and Anthony Dibernardo.
