BROOKLYN - Local Target stores opened their doors to dozens of city kids for a back-to-school shopping spree this morning.

It's the second year the Salvation Army has sponsored the event. Sixty kids from Brooklyn and dozens more from around the five boroughs each got an $80 gift card to spend on new clothes and gear for the upcoming school year.

Target donated close to a million dollars in grants and gift cards.

The Salvation Army says about 12,000 children across the country in grades K-12 were chosen for this year's spree.
