Morrisville State athletics to hold back-to-school supply drive

The Morrisville State College athletics department will be holding their third annual “Back to School” supply drive now through Sept. 23 for the local Morrisville-Eaton Central School District, in an effort to assist district children with needed supplies for the upcoming school year.

In two years of conducting the drive, the Mustangs were able to collect and donate more than 3,000 items to the Elementary and Middle/High Schools, including just over 2,000 with last year’s efforts.

Donations will be collected now through Saturday, Sept. 23, at the athletic office, located in the Recreation Center. Mustang fans can also make a donation at identified home games on the Morrisville State campus.

Needed supplies include, but are not limited to: pens, pencils, notebooks, paper, erasers, two-pocket folders, markers, crayons, glue sticks, highlighters and binders.
