Help available for Back-to-School time
Could your child benefit from the Back to School Store? Children not only receive all the school supplies they need to begin the new school year, they also get a boost in their self esteem by starting the school year with things that other children may take granted: a new outfit, storybook, dental screening and hair cut.
If your child is involved in Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Wisconsin (BBBSNEW) and you are a BROWN COUNTY resident, you may sign up for assistance from the Service League of Green Bay’s Back to School Store.
BBBSNEW has been given 45 slots to fill. Those will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. There will not be a waitlist.
SIGN UP IS REQUIRED BY JUNE 30.

For children in sixth-grade or older, they can receive a backpack filled with school supplies, which may be picked up from the BBBSNEW office between Aug. 8 and 22.
