Third Annual Back to School Shop Wows Students

The Back to School Shop, an all-volunteer community organization, held its third annual event on Sunday, July 30th, at Davenport Ridge Elementary School in Stamford. Nearly two hundred and fifty 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 175 volunteers from the community helped to make the event a resounding success.
