We're in the thick of back-to-school shopping with kids starting up in just a couple weeks and local agencies have been working hard to get much needed donations to supply area children with all the needed essentials.  If you add those supplies to the clothing bill parents shell out for school, it's a hefty price tag for families to bear!

Bassett Healthcare Call Center employees just finished up a successful employee school supply collection and ended up with 20 backpacks filled with school supplies, demonstrating that even small groups of people can make a difference in our community!  So we challenge employees at other businesses and organizations to come together to collect and donate to non-profits like Family Service Association in Oneonta which has a school supply distribution event coming up next week. During this event, families in need can get what their children require for a successful school year.  See all the details below...
