By WKTV News

ROME, N.Y. (WKTV) - It's never too early to shop for school supplies and that's just what Adirondack Bank in the City of Rome is doing for needy families.

The program is called "Backpacks for Kids," and the bank is collecting backpacks for students from Kindergarten through 8th grade.

You can drop off all sorts of school supplies, including pens, paper, binders, and crayons during normal bank hours. (Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm)

"We have a wonderful community," said Rome Branch Manager Donna Burch. "They would come in with bags of stuff. Everyone has sales right now."

The school supplies and backpacks will be distributed to students at Rome schools on September 5.
