Hundreds Of Students Go On Free Back-To-School Shopping Spree

Back-to-school shopping is a typical summer activity for families, but it can be a stressful time for those who struggle financially.

That’s where the Back 2 School Store steps in. The National Council of Jewish Women, Essex County Section (NCJW/Essex) organizes the annual event and asks local social service agencies, including New Community Corporation, to identify economically disadvantaged students in Essex County.

The children go on a shopping spree with a personal shopper where they receive brand new items for free in a one-day pop-up “department store.”

Victoria and Elijah Oluwatodimu participated in this year’s event July 30 and each had a large bag of items to take home with them.


SAIF Hosts First Of Its Kind Event With NCJW/Essex Period.Project

The food stamp program, SNAP, doesn’t cover feminine hygiene products and many women go without them, including some associates of the New Community Supportive Assistance to Individuals and Families Program (SAIF).
