Students shop for free school clothes, supplies in Lynbrook

The start of the school year is still weeks away, but more than 600 Nassau students shopped for free school clothes and supplies on Sunday at a special event.



Kids picked out coats, shoes and more in Lynbrook at the Back 2 School Store, an event organized by the National Council of Jewish Women's Peninsula Section.



Each child was paired with a personal shopper in a setting that resembled a department store. In addition to clothes, each student got to select a backpack filled with school supplies.



The items are donated and purchased wholesale, according to organizers.



While students shopped, their parents took advantage of a resource center that featured information about the community and social services.
