Westport Supports BACK TO SCHOOL SHOP

The Back to School Shop, a new, all volunteer community event was launched on Sunday, August 9, at Davenport Ridge Elementary School in Stamford, CT. One hundred and twenty-five of the most economically disadvantaged elementary school children from 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, created just for them. Over 150 volunteers, many trained as “personal shoppers” for the children, helped to make the event a resounding success.
