Back 2 School Store

Sunday, August 2, 2015

New in 2015, the Back 2 School Store will provide 100 children with everything they need to go back to school with pride, confidence, and enthusiasm. For one day, on August 2, 2015, NCJW NY’s Council House will be transformed into a very special department store, to provide each child with a brand new outfit (top, bottom, parka, sneakers, underwear and socks) as well as a backpack filled with school supplies. Best of all, all items will be chosen by the children themselves, based on their own tastes and styles. While children shop with their volunteer personal shoppers, parents will explore the Family Resource Center, where representatives from public and private agencies will be on hand to inform parents about resources available in the community to support their family’s health, learning, and growth.

 Working in partnership with community-based agencies serving low-income families, we will pre-register eligible children entering grades K through 5. We will be soliciting in-kind donations from children’s clothing manufacturers and retailers, and working with schools, synagogues, churches and community groups to organize donation drives to collect NEW items for the store. What we cannot collect as donations, we will purchase at low cost from wholesale suppliers.

If you would like to get involved as a volunteer or a partner agency for the Back 2 School Store, please contact Yael Reisman, Director of Outreach and Engagement, at 646-884-9460.
