With a few days left until the new school year, Yonkers parents were able to snag some free school supplies.
Mayor Mike Spano along with city officials gathered at the Enrico Fermi auditorium on Tuesday for the 11th Annual Backpack to School Drive.
More than 870 backpacks, school supplies, and classroom supplies were given out to parents and children.
News 12’s Kurt Fischer asked the kids what are they going to do with their new supplies.
“Go to school with it and pack lunch,” says Jiyaan Wills a student at Enrico Fermi.
Backpacks and school supplies were donated by City of Yonkers employees, residents, and various corporate and nonprofit sponsors.
