East New York kids shop until they drop at Target

EAST NEW YORK - Several children in East New York along with a group of kids citywide were selected to receive a free back-to-school shopping spree at Target today.

Each child was given an $80 gift card to buy school supplies for the upcoming school year.

From backpacks to pencil holders, many of the children and their parents say they were so grateful for the opportunity to truly stock up on supplies for school.

Many of the families who won the shopping spree say they wouldn't have been able to afford so many supplies without it.
