Back to School Shop-- Second Annual Event Community Event Serves Stamford’s Neediest Children
The Back To School Shop, a community event organized to provide new school clothes and supplies to economically disadvantaged elementary school children, will have its 2nd annual event on Sunday, July 31, 2016 at Davenport Ridge Elementary School in Stamford. Over 200 children from kindergarten through fifth grade, who have been identified by elementary school social workers in the Stamford Public School System, will be able to select their own brand new items in a department store environment created just for them. This represents nearly a 70% increase in children served vs. the inaugural event last year. Over 50% of Stamford students are considered economically disadvantaged and many return to school each year without basic clothing and school supplies. The mission of the Back to School Shop is to help build the confidence and enthusiasm these children need to have a successful start to the school year, by providing new school clothes and supplies.
