CARROLL TOWNSHIP, Pa.-- Folks in York County are making sure children in need get a good education. Volunteers gathered at Northern High School, near Dillsburg, York County, on Saturday for the "Youth Impact Project." It's a one-day event to help prepare families and youngsters for the upcoming school year.

Those in attendance received free supplies, also books, sneakers and even hair cuts. The project is aimed at making a difference for those living in Adams, Cumberland, Perry and York Counties.

"All the partners that are doing it together as a community, they are pushing us to do it again next year because it's really a beautiful thing when you see the community together and you drop the barriers between each other, it's really special to come here and serve together, it's really meaningful," says Ken Landis, Executive Director.

Local businesses, organizations and churches come together to make this event a success.
