Utica, NY (WIBX) - The YWCA of the Mohawk Valley needs your help. The non-profit group is looking for school supply donations for children living in domestic violence shelters across our region.

Organizers say they're in need of backpacks, lunch bags, clothing and some basic school supplies. They say the donations will help the students--who are facing difficult circumstances---transition smoothly back to school. Those able to lend a hand are asked to contact project coordinator, Diane Jackson at (315) 732-2159 ext. 221, or via email at djackson@ywca.org.
