Do you remember the first day of school? Did you have a new outfit? Shiny new shoes? A backpack full of school supplies? Wouldn’t it be great if every child could have those things?
August 11 & 12, NCJW Pittsburgh Section will host our first Back 2 School Store (B2SS) where children K-5th grade from economically disadvantaged families will get that same experience. Assisted by a volunteer “personal shopper,” each child will choose their new back to school outfit, shoes, and backpack full of school supplies. They will also pick a winter coat, hat, and gloves, so their families don’t have to worry about that either when winter comes.
Now we just need your help to staff the store!
Volunteers can be shoppers, work registration, help to build dressing rooms, and so much more. You can sit, you can stand-you just have to care.
Sign up today, then pass it on.
