Let's Take Kids Shopping!
We are sponsoring over 100 school aged children from local foster programs. These children have a need for clothes, book bags, and shoes for the school year. Instead of gently used items, or picking out clothes for the children, we thought it would be a lot more fun if we took them shopping.
Each child will be paired with a personal shopper and receive a $150 gift card to shop. We need a LOT of volunteers to make this event happen, so please register and spread the word!
About Our Charity Event
This event was a dream of Larissa Benson's, the Charity Founder and Brokerage Owner of RE/MAX Legends, for years. In 2017, it all came together. This year we are thrilled to present our 7th annual in person event! This program was created to give back to foster and DFACS children in our community that do not have the means for the normal back to school shopping experience most of us take for granted. Hand me down items and gifts are wonderful. However, there is something very empowering about being able to PICK your back to school items. Our charity is a one day extremely impactful event. When the children arrive, they are paired with a VIP personal shopper for a one on one experience. Their shopper (one of our volunteers) spends the morning with the child. Oftentimes they are listening more than speaking. They participate in activities with the child. Like even riding the hot air balloon, and helping their child shop at Target. The children love to go shopping. They are also learning about coupons, and getting the most for their money. Sometimes, for the first time in a while, they have an adults attention completely devoted to them.
Kids Shop Charity 20237th Annual Back To School Event
July 22, 2023
Bogan Park - 2723 N Bogan Rd NE, Buford, GA 30519
Over 100 Foster Children
Because we want to give back. And it's more fun to pick out your OWN stuff, than to have other people decide what you want.
"Kids Shop" is a charity event for the kids. We will have the RE/MAX hot air balloon giving tethered rides at Bogan Park (weather pending), bouncy houses, activities, breakfast, and transportation giving rides back and forth to the shopping at Target.
Each child will receive a $150 gift card to shop with and be paired with a VIP personal shopper for their trip to Target
