The drive will go through August 30th with supply collection points throughout the Senate District 52 where community members can make a contribution. The locations for collection points in Cortland and Tompkins County may be found below:

“Teachers play an indispensable role in shaping the future of our community,” Senator Lea Webb said in a release. “They work tirelessly to educate our children and often go above and beyond by personally filling resource gaps in their classrooms. The Back to School Supplies Drive for Teachers is a way for us all to contribute to their success. As we gear up for the new school year, I encourage those who are able to stop by one of the collection locations and make a difference by donating supplies that will directly impact the educational experience of our students.”
