The following schools received supplies and each school will distribute the items internally:

  • Central Valley Academy
  • Dolgeville Central School
  • Richfield Springs Central Schools
  • Martin Luther King Elementary, Utica
  • Christopher Columbus Elementary, Utica

  • Waterville Elementary School

If your child's school is not included in the list above, you can contact the following community agencies which also received supplies:

More than 22,000 items were collected this year, along with over $24,000 in monetary donations.
