Blessings in a Backpack: going back to school while helping others

It's back to school season and Orchard Mall in West Bloomfield wants you to get your year started on the right foot - while also helping other students and families.

Orchard Mall is hosting Blessings in a Backpack - a neighbor-helping-neighbor program that is designed to help meet the nutritional needs of children and families. Each week, volunteers distribute backpacks full of non-perishable food for at-risk students. The food is enough for six meals for the weekend and is given to students in the free or reduced hot lunch program.

Here's where you come in. This Wednesday, the mall will be screening the Disney move "Finding Nemo" at 7 pm. Tickets are just a $3 donation to Blessings in a Backpack.

While you're at the mall - there are some things you'll need to pick up for your kids. Here's what's hot this school year:

Hot for girls:
