A local church surprised several less fortunate students with a shopping spree Saturday. More than 20 kids received 200 dollars to spend at the South Plains Mall.
It was a part of Experience Life Church's "End of the Year Blow Out" for students in the Bridge 2 Success Program. The program provides after school mentoring for middle and high school students at the Bridge of Lubbock.
"Initially we started with 100 dollars as their shopping spree. But, they got a donor to match this, so now it's a 200 dollar shopping spree. So it's just, so, so amazing!" says Mayda Cruz who is the Executive Director of the Bridge of Lubbock.
With 200 dollars in hand, the students of the Bridge program were given an hour and half to spend their money at the mall.
