SCOTTSDALE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) -

It's back to school time for a lot of kids..But we know it can be really expensive for families.

More than 400 members of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale were selected Tuesday to be apart of a big back-to-school shopping event Tuesday.

Officials say the selections were based on need, will be paired with a community volunteer to help shop for new school clothes and shoes at the Desert Ridge Kohl's, thanks to the generosity of community leaders Ellie and Michael Ziegler.

Over the past six years, Ziegler's Prep Rally events have provided thousands of Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Scottsdale children with a $100 budget to do their back to school shopping with community volunteer helpers.

Officials say that not only have the Zieglers funded this program, they have also taken part in the shopping experience with the kids.

If you miss Tuesday's event, another shopping event this Thursday, July 26. For students in Flagstaff, there will be a similar event to be held in a later time.
