Back to School Store a success
Another year of The Back to School Store is labeled as a success! About 1,600 children were invited to attend this year’s Back to School Store, and 1,211 children were served on the day of the event at the new location, the Kress Events Center. Those 1,211 children had the opportunity to go through the Back to School Store to pick out a new outfit, shoes, socks, underwear and a backpack filled with school supplies. They also received a dental and vision screening. The team members behind the 2019 Back to School Store would like to extend their thanks to members, volunteers, agencies, donors, companies, associate members and all those who supported the Store.
