The Service League of Green Bay hosted their 26th annual Back-to-School Store for the first time at the University of Wisconsin - Green Bay.

Organizers say it takes as many as 800 volunteers to put the store together.

The goal is to make sure children in Brown County that may not have everything to go back to school have everything they need including a checkup with an eye doctor and dentists. 

This year 1,500 children came through the store and another 1,500 backpacks were filled for middle-schoolers the day before.
