DARIEN — Giving back to charity and also hoping to give the kids in town a few smiles, the Darien Sport Shop held its second annual Back to School Carnival Saturday afternoon.

“We are donating a percentage of the sales today to three nonprofits—Kids in Crisis, United Way, and the Make a Wish Foundation,” said Geri Corrigan, marketing consultant.

Games and activities took place throughout the third floor of the family-owned store, including face painting, hair braiding and a wheel of fortune.
