One week before the new school began, over 1,000 Liberty City youth received free book bags, other school supplies, manicures and haircuts at a book bag give away held at the Joseph Caleb Center. In the photos, the youth are pictured with law enforcement and safety officials, while receiving free services and supplies. The free event was sponsored by The Progressive Firefighters Association Charities Inc. in conjunction with the Progressive Officer Club, Florida Coalition of Black State Troopers, Beauty School of America, 99 Jamz, Hot 105, and State Rep. Cynthia Stafford.
