Group provides free school supplies to struggling families
The fifth annual back-to-school store was hosted by the National Council of Jewish Women in Hewlett Sunday.
Hundreds of kids walked away with free backpacks, sneakers and winter coats and other school supplies.
Organizers say the event is a chance to boost every child's confidence before they head back to the classroom.
A total of 800 children were invited to participate in this year's program.
