For the first year of the Columbus Back-To-School Store, we plan to assist 75 elementary school children from low-income families in the Columbus area. Invitations to participate are sent to qualifying children whose needs are not being met by existing services. We work with social service agencies, churches, temples, schools, and community service organizations to help select the qualifying children. The 2019 store will focus on serving boys and girls going into 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade (8 to 11 years old).

Your generous donation will help to ensure children are outfitted for their first day of school. Please consider becoming a sponsor of our Back to School store

The Back-To-School Store is a one-day event set up like a department store. Each child is assigned an adult volunteer (their own “personal shopper”) to help them shop for clothing and supplies in their favorite colors and styles. While the children are shopping, their parents and guardians will be able to spend time in the Family Resource Room. The Family Resource Room is a collaboration with other community businesses and organizations to provide resources to families ranging from vision screenings to financial advice assistance to information on childhood safety. Each child will be given a set time to come shopping and is guaranteed to walk away with all of the items they would like. If we do not have the correct size at the event, we will make sure to follow-up with the child after they leave with the correct item. 

We need you - all of our committees are signing up volunteers to help with the launch and ongoing efforts of our BTSS. Give us your name below to be added to our list for the next BTSS!
