The United Way of Erie County is asking for your help to get students ready for school.

It is hosting its annual school supply drive starting Monday, July 16.

You can drop off your donations at 13 locations throughout Erie County through Friday, July 20.

The supplies will be distributed to partnering schools in the area, including the United Way's five community schools in the City of Erie.

Supplies needed include colored pencils, crayons, dry erase markers, erasers, folders and more.

They will be given out based on need at the discretion of each school.

This is the second year for the supply drive.
