The Rotary Club of West Austin will host the annual Christmas Shopping Spree for select students from the Wooldridge Elementary School, 12:30 - 4 pm on Sunday, December 8th, 2019.
In keeping with a long standing tradition, the West Austin Rotary Club will be hosting the annual Christmas Shopping Spree for select students from Wooldridge Elementary this coming Sunday, December 8.  AISD provides bus transportation for the students and our shoppers to the JC Penney's at Lakeline Mall.  Parents and guardians provide a list of needed clothing and our shoppers work with the students to find stylish, fitting clothing per the list.
Wooldridge Elementary is a Title I school with a high proportion of economically disadvantaged students.  This is a chance for a couple dozen children chosen by their teachers to pick out their own clothes.  On the following Monday morning teachers report that nearly all the children come to school decked out in their new clothes.  It is also touching by the ways in which the chosen students select gifts for family members.
As many of these children are English language learners, we depend on the translation skills of the Anderson High Spanish Honors Society students to help with successful communication.
