Stamford 'Back To School Shop' Event A Success

Back to School Shop, Inc., an all-volunteer community organization, held its fourth annual event on Sunday, July 29th, at Davenport Ridge Elementary School in Stamford. Nearly three 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 250 volunteers from the community helped to make the event a resounding success.
