A group of brave RAOC souls ventured out to Target at the crack of dawn this past weekend to accompany disadvantaged kids on a shopping spree, thanks to a great partnership with the Salvation Army. Each child received $100 to shop, as well as an adult companion to help them get the right clothes and supplies they need for the coming school year. The members reported back how much they connected with these kids and how this was an amazing event. Clearly the old adage is true: 'tis better to shop than to receive. God Bless all involved.
