Helping out at the NCJW’s Back to School event!

The So Cal Group Human Resources Department teamed up with the National Council of Jewish Women this week for their annual Back 2 School Sale. The purpose of the event is to help provide shoes, clothing and school supplies to children and families in need. The NCJW has been planning and preparing for this event since last summer, and volunteers for the organization have been collecting donations tThe So Cal Group- Volunteering for the NCJW Back to School Event (5)o use at the “store” during the event.

Children and parents in attendance participated in several activities. When they arrived they were assigned to a volunteer who took them “shopping.” The children were able to choose shirts, pants, sweatshirts, socks, underwear and shoes that they liked, and then brought them home in a shopping bag. Afterward, they headed outside to select a backpack full of school supplies: brand new folders, pencils, colored pencils, crayons, notebooks, erasers, rulers and more. They also stopped by the popcorn stand, art station, and jump house.Β  Overall the event was a great success, the children had a great time going “shopping”, and they are prepped to have an awesome school year.
