YONKERS - School supplies can be quite expensive, so the city of Yonkers has launched the Backpack to School program to help needy children prepare for school.

Drop-off boxes have been set up at nine locations, including Yonkers City Hall, so people and businesses can donate school supplies to children throughout the city.

One local backpack manufacturer is even donating 300 backpacks to the program.
