Preregister for the 2014 Kids Shopping Day

Participants line up to begin the 2014 Southern Illinois
Spring Classic, just one of the many fund-raising events
that benefit the Kids Shopping Day of Lawrence County

Preregistration Set for the Annual Kids Shopping Day:  Saturday July 26th

The ninth annual Kids Shopping Day of Lawrence County will be hosting a preregistration at the Central Christian Church Saturday July 26th, beginning at 9:00 A.M. KSD provides Lawrence County PreK through high school aged pupils with classroom supplies and clothing items including tennis shoes, for back-to-school.  In August 2013 a total of 627 young people went "shopping" just as summer vacation was coming to an end.     

KSD organizers initiated a preregistration process in 2012 to alleviate long lines during the event.

To participate, families register by giving the first name(s) of their child(ren) and clothing size(s.)  Adults are then given a time to return to the Central Christian Church on Saturday August 2nd (8:30 A.M. to 3:00 P.M.) to "shop."  Families unable to preregister on July 26th can do so on August 2nd.

Each Lawrence County youngster participating in KSD is matched with a personal helper to assist them at the event; pupils browse the selections and choose the clothing items and backpack they want. Youngsters can even get a free haircut.  Numerous local hairdressers will volunteer their time again this year to make it possible.  Last year over 160 young people walked away with a fresh haircut after attending Kids Shopping Day
