Roseville, Calif. - Placer County nonprofit Tommy Apostolos Fund is seeking nearly 800 volunteers to accompany over 500 local, underserved children on a holiday shopping trip for new clothes, shoes, and various winter essentials. The organization's signature event is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 2 and is made possible through the generosity of Kohl's, volunteers, community donors and corporate sponsors.  

For the past 30 years, the Fund has worked directly with Roseville school district teachers and staff who refer worthy students from within the community. Each volunteer is paired with two children to escort through the store to shop outside of Kohl's normal business hours.
