Some Local Kids “Shop with a Doc” Today
Christmas wishes come true today — when about 50 children from the LightHouse after-school program storm the aisles of Target, thanks to a generous donation from Specialists Hospital of Shreveport. This is the very first “Shop with a Doc” Christmas shopping spree, and each child gets $100 to spend on toys and another $100 for basic needs, like clothes and school supplies. The doctors involved come from Orthopedic Specialists of Louisiana, Spine Institute of Louisiana and Pain Care Consultants. The kids meet up at 9 this morning at the Target store on Youree Drive, and doctors and folks from Volunteers of America will be personal shoppers for each child.
