Turning Point Helps Hundreds of Steuben County Students Start a Successful
As school districts kicked off the beginning of the 2017-18 school year, hundreds of Steuben County students were equipped for success through community partnerships and donations to Turning Point’s 10th annual Back-to-School Supply Drive. Turning Point coordinated the drive that equipped more than 235 students in Bath-area school districts and more than 200 students in Hornell-area school districts. In addition to school supplies, Turning Point also provided vouchers for donated haircuts and participated in the Olympia Sports Clothing Bank program to provide sneakers, tee shirts, shorts, and socks. Turning Point would like to thank the many businesses and churches who donated to the 2017 Back-to-School Supply Drive and the many volunteers who helped with the distribution, including Assemblyman Phil Palmesano.
