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.
The annual Back to School Shop, which benefits children who are entering kindergarten through fifth grade, was held Sunday at Davenport Ridge Elementary School.
