The event which provided over 20 Elementary School students with new shoes, a book bag, a school uniform, and assorted school supplies was held Sunday. It was organized by SBC Community Development Corporation in partnership with DTLR’s Homestead Store.

City of Homestead Council Members Patricia Fairclough, Larry Roth, and Jennifer Bailey were on hand to help out along with volunteers from Colestars LLC, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority (FIU), SBC CDC Staff, Millertime Productions, and the Women’s Empowerment Circle.
