National Council of Jewish Women St. Louis helped provide school essentials; clothes and other items to 2,000 St. Louis-area children during the organization’s annual Back to School! Store on July 19. This year was the 20th anniversary of the event. College Hunks Hauling Junk and Moving provided a distribution hub where volunteers picked up boxes of filled backpacks to deliver to partner agencies in the St. Louis area, which distributed the bags to clients and members. Pictured here is volunteer driver Jenny Abeles. This was Abeles’ 15th year volunteering with the Back to School! Store.
