Back To School Shopping Day

In August 2019, we hosted our 20th annual Back-to-School Shopping event at Kohl’s in Torrance. This year, the event benefited more than 70 underprivileged youth in the South Bay. Each pre-selected child was referred by local nonprofit partner agencies and paired with a member of Sandpipers and Sandpiper Juniors who assisted them with selecting and purchasing school clothes, uniforms, shoes and supplies valued at over $400 per child.

The continued support of this program was made possible by Kohl’s, which opened its doors before normal business hours, provided staff for the event, and gave our shoppers an additional 20 percent off and no sales tax.
