OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — Hundreds of visually impaired children participated in a Christmas shopping party over the weekend.
The Nebraska Foundation for Visually Impaired Children sponsored the 59th Annual Ruth Sokolof Christmas Shopping Party. Each kid received 100 dollars in-store and mall cards to shop at Westroads Mall.
High school students served as volunteers and their shopping buddies.
"It's helpful because I can't really see some stuff, like numbers, how much stuff costs, or sometimes I get lost," shopper Jonattan said.
More than 200 high schoolers signed up to be buddy shoppers.
