Clearwater, Miami Distribute Free School Supplies

CLEARWATER, Fla. (AP) — Officials in Clearwater and Miami are handing out free school supplies to children.

Clearwater police officers are distributing free backpacks to children on Saturday at the North Greenwood Recreation & Aquatic Center. There will also be lunch, school supplies, wellness exams, youth physicals, blood pressure and vision checks — all available for free.

Meanwhile in Miami, city officials will attend a back-to-school giveaway event at Kendale Lakes Branch Library. School supplies and materials will be handed out, while supplies last.

Toys for Kids Miami is also hosting “Operation Backpack” in Doral to help low-income children in Miami-Dade County. School supplies will be donated to children who do not have access to the school supplies needed for the school year.
