Annual Back To School Shop Event Set In Stamford

Back To School Shop, a community event organized to provide new school clothes and supplies to economically disadvantaged elementary school children, will celebrate its 5th anniversary at its annual event on Sunday, July 28, 2019 at Davenport Ridge Elementary School in Stamford. To mark the occasion there will be some special treats in store for children and volunteers alike, and 5-year donors and volunteers will be recognized. "We are so proud of what we have been able to accomplish these past 5 years, as an all-volunteer, non-profit organization," said Co-Founder Meryl Japha. "At our first event we served 125 children. This year we are expecting to serve 350!"
