NEWFIELD Davenport Ridge Elementary School will host a one-day back-to-school shop on July 28, designed to provide a free first-day outfit to economically disadvantaged elementary school students in Stamford. The Back To School Shop is in its fifth year and is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization that was founded in 2013 by two local women, Meryl Japha and Jane Levene. The students who are invited to "shop" at the pop-up store are identified by Stamford Public School social workers. Nearly 300 elementary school children attended the shop last year. To date, the Back to School Shop has served over 850 children. Volunteer shoppers purchase all the items in the shop throughout the year, using funds donated by private individuals, local foundations and organizations. The Back to School Shop is set up like a department store. Volunteer "personal shoppers" help each child select a brand new outfit for school (a shirt, pants, socks, underwear, winter coat, hat and gloves) and the children are fitted for new sneakers. They also receive a new backpack and school supplies and are able to pick out a new book to bring home.
