Second Annual Back to School Shop Event Doubles in Size

The Back to School Shop, an all-volunteer community organization, held its second annual event on Sunday, July 31st, at Davenport Ridge Elementary School in Stamford. Two hundred children from the Stamford Public elementary schools were able to “shop” free of charge for brand new back-to-school outfits and school supplies in a department store-like setting, with the help of volunteer “personal shoppers.” Over 150 volunteers from the community helped to make the event a resounding success.
