STAMFORD - A nonprofit organization hosted its fifth annual back-to-school shopping spree Sunday where economically disadvantaged students can shop for free. The event takes place once a year before school starts, but the organization Back to School Shop works year-round to make purchases and gather volunteers. All monetary donations go straight to buying the kids brand new clothes and school supplies.
As the new school year approaches, an event Sunday supplied gear to kids whose families might not be able to afford everything they need.
The fourth annual "Back To School Shop" took place at the Davenport Ridge Elementary School gym, as students from low-income families got to pick out brand new supplies.
