Students at two area schools will have extra school supplies thanks to the California Grill in Vestal.

Today, the restaurant donated materials, including paper, pencils and folders, to Union-Endicott's George F. Johnson Elementary School.

The collection drive was dubbed Operation School Supply.

"We put a supply list out at the beginning of the year, but many families aren't able to meet that supply list. We certainly don't want need to get in the way of success, so it's a way for us to level the playing field for all students," said the school's principal, Larry Dake.

California Grill also donated supplies to Vestal's Clayton Avenue Elementary School.
