Operation School Supplies helps Endicott School

By Fox 40 Staff.
Students at George F. Johnson Elementary School in Endicott are starting off the school year with the right supplies thanks to one local restaurant.

California Grill in Vestal donated two vanloads of pens, pencils, notebooks and binders to the elementary school for operation school supplies, making sure kids have what they need for class.

"It's huge, this is a good example of a collaboration between a community and a school, we have so many students that came to us and need supplies and its so great that they're so generous in donating these things that we can get our kids started with what they need at the beginning of the school year." - Johanna Hickey, Assistant Principal, George F. Johnson Elementary School

"We did this last year with George F. Johnson, this is the second year we've done this and theres a big need in Union-Endicott, so its great to be able to do it." - Jackie Soule, General Manager, California Grill
