Our Back 2 School Store debuted in August, 2015. That year we provided 75 children with everything they needed to go back to school with pride, confidence, and enthusiasm. We hope to expand and serve over 150 kids at this year’s Back 2 School Store on August 7, 2016. NCJW NY’s Council House is transformed into a very special department store, to provide each child with a brand new outfit (shirt, pants, parka, sneakers, underwear and socks) as well as a backpack filled with school supplies. Best of all, the children choose each of these items themselves, based on their own tastes and styles. While children shop with their volunteer personal shoppers, parents can explore the Family Resource Center, where representatives from public and private agencies are on hand to inform them about resources available in the community to support their family’s health, learning, and growth.
