Buffalo, N.Y.- The community, local businesses, and 2 On Your Side continue to partner for this year's annual "2 Pack A Backpack Drive".

The Buffalo Bisons joined the effort to help fill an immense need for Western New York children getting ready for school.

The Bisons partnered with industrial company LaFarge to encourage fans "2 Pack A Backpack" at Wednesday night's game against the Rochester Red Wings.

All fans that donate a backpack and/or other school supplies prior to the game received a free ticket voucher that they can use at ANY game through to April of 2015.

The response so far has the Boys & Girls Clubs of Buffalo busy sorting donations which they've already began to distribute.

But the donations received may not be enough to fill the overwhelming amount of requests.

We are still looking for the following:

Backpacks

Filler paper

Markers

Pencil boxes

Binders

Scissors

Pens

The "2 Pack a Backpack" drive works to provide Western New York kids with school supplies that could not otherwise afford them. Thousands of kids will benefit from this year's effort.
