Each June, in and around Red Bluff and Tehama County, you will find our mini-backpacks placed on the counters of local businesses. Outside of private tax-deductible donations, this is our major fundraiser for each year. Thank you to all of the businesses that allow us have our backpacks
on their counters each year.
Thank you Red Bluff business owners and the community at large
for your support!!!!!
Applicants are encouraged to apply on any of the three application dates, as preference for the shopping day is not given on a first come first served basis.
Location information coming soon!
The Great Shopping Day ~ 2nd Saturday in August
The second weekend in August, qualifying Tehama County children are taken on a shopping trip to purchase new clothing, shoes, and backpacks. Each of these children receive $100.00 worth of clothing in preparation for the school year. They are partnered with a volunteer shopper who helps them with selections. Thank you to our dedicated volunteers who make this a memorable experience for the children and thank you to the staff at the Red Bluff Walmart store for making our shopping experience exceptional!
Children participate in this event BY SELECTION ONLY!
Since 2004, over 1000 local children have went back to school
looking and feeling good about themselves!
Thank you Red Bluff!
