BALDWIN - Baldwin parents are launching a fundraiser to fight for some of their school's programs that were cut out of the budget.

Residents are dropping off old toys and other items at Baldwin High School, all to be sold at a tag sale.

Sports night, musicals and athletics are some of the after-school programs that have been cut.

BOCES Deputy Superintendent Dr. Julie Lutz says Baldwin isn't the only school district that's hurting. She says almost every district took a hit because of the 2 percent tax cap and multi-year cuts in state school aid.

The tag sale will be held Saturday.
