Service League of Green Bay is hosting the 26th annual Back to School Store this Wednesday, August 8th, on the UWGB campus.

It runs from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

It's the first year of the partnership between Service League and UWGB.

Service League says holding the event at the university will give kids an experience of being on a college campus as they prepare for their own school year.

The store provides new clothing, sneakers, socks, underwear and school supplies to elementary-age children living in poverty in Brown County.

Children are invited to “shop” for an outfit for school and pick up a new backpack filled with required school supplies. Vision and dental screenings are also available.
