Hunters Point civic and parents organizations are hosting a community-driven school supply drive from now through September 6.

The Gantry Parent Association, Hunter Point Civic Association Education Committee and Hunters Point Parks Conservancy are collecting school supplies for area students as the school year approaches.

According to the groups, 69 percent of students are at or near the poverty line in the school district, which makes buying school supplies hard for many families.
