Utica, NY (WIBX) - With summer coming to an end, students and parents will soon be making the back-to-school shopping trip.

But for some it may be impossible to get the supplies they need.

Last year, over 120 children and teens stayed in YWCA residential facilities across the Mohawk Valley.

The young people at the shelters often rely on donations for their back-to-school clothes and supplies.

For information how you can donate or to help a child in need, contact the YWCA Mohawk Valley at (315) 732-2159.
