The United Way of the Valley and Greater Utica Area wrapped up their annual Back to School supply drive today.

Throughout the summer, area residents donated school supplies to help make sure local students are prepared when they head into the classroom this fall.

The United way will distribute the supplies to Central Valley Academy, Herkimer, Dolgeville, Proctor High, New York Mills and Mt. Markham Central schools.

Also, any families in need of supplies can contact Public Distribution sites after August 21.

Those sites are:

  • Catholic Charities, 61 West Street, Ilion 315-894-9917
  • Salvation Army, 14 Clinton Place, Utica 315-724-8736

Supplies will be available during business hours only.
