How to help:

The United Way of Erie County is collecting new materials for its 13 community schools using an online donation option called “Wish Lists” for most schools. The United Way also accepts in-store items and monetary donations. The ride began for some schools on July 22 and will end on Friday. Other schools started their campaign on July 15th and will continue collecting items until August 15th. Monetary donations can be made at by writing “CS Drive” in the comments section of your monetary donation.
