SKANEATELES, NY (December 5, 2017) – The 17th annual Skaneateles Middle School Holiday Shopping Spree is set to take place on Wednesday, December 13 from 3:30 – 5:30 p.m. at Target in Camillus, presented by the Central New York Community Foundation and the Skaneateles Middle School Student Council.
Thanks to the help of the Central New York Community Foundation and the Skaneateles Middle School Student Council, students will head to Target on December 13 armed with $13,750 to purchase gifts for children who otherwise may not get any this Christmas.
The students will be split into 13 different shopping groups, with each having 90 minutes and $1,000 to shop. Each item purchased must be under $15.
The vast number of toys collected will be given to Peace Incorporated and other local charities, who will distribute the toys throughout Central New York to children of all ages.
“The Holiday Shopping Spree not only makes children of Central New York smile, but it impacts the students who participate in this annual event,” said Scott Stagnitta, the Skaneateles Middle School’s student council advisor. “They see first-hand through photos, letters, and videos supplied by our toy recipients, how giving to other children makes the world a better place.”
