New notebooks, new rulers and new calculators—that’s what filled the brand new backpacks of dozens of children from New Community whose families were selected to participate in the Back 2 School Store on August 2. Madge Wilson, New Community board member and outreach coordinator, organized families from NCC to attend the free shopping spree held in West Orange for needy families so that students would start off the new school year on the right foot. In addition to stocking up on classroom supplies, students were fitted for winter coats, shoes, pants, shirts and other personal items at the one-day, pop-up store hosted by the National Council of Jewish Women, Essex County Section. New Community wishes to thank the NCJW/Essex for hosting the 7th Annual Back 2 School Store.
