The first Back 2 School Store in Pittsburgh was a huge success! On August 11 & 12, more than 200 children got to choose a new back to school outfit and shoes, a backpack stuffed with school supplies, and a winter coat, hat, and gloves.
At the B2SS we asked the children to describe the day in just one word. The word art you see here is composed of their words. The larger the word, the more times we heard it! Scroll down to see photos from the event and a video segment from WPXI.
Thanks to our volunteers, our donors, our sponsors, and our friends who all worked together to make this event happen. This year is just the beginning! You can still support this amazing program with a donation…click the button below to donate online.
