A donation drive was held at the Rotterdam Community Center on Curry Road on Thursday afternoon, to support migrants living at the Super 8 Motel in Rotterdam.

People were dropping off clothes, shoes, and more for the nearly 300 migrants in Schenectady County.

Busloads of migrants, including more than 70 school age children, arrived from New York City, and were sent to the motel last month.

The donation drive was organized by Allies for Justice, a local group that has seen its Facebook membership triple in the past two days.
