ILION, N.Y.-If you need school supplies for back to school, American Legion Post 920 in Ilion might be able to help you.

The Ilion Post will be giving away free school supplies to the combined Illion and Mohawk school districts, as well as the Outreach Center in Utica and Herkimer Elementary School.

Donations have come from all over, including local stores. The Post has been accepting donations since May, and more are continuing to come in.

“I can't even begin to tell you how many people have donated to this cause.” said Doris Scheiderich, a post member.

Another post member Charles Brown added; “We donate to a lot of different people, and a lot of different organizations I should say. But the outreach center in Utica, we like to donate to the CVR and all the school districts around here."

All the donations the post receives will be distributed to the children and schools in need on August 24th at 10:00 am.
