The Cann Park Young Men Alumnae Association and Beach High School class of 1987 hosted a school supply giveaway.

The school supply giveaway has been going on for nearly a decade. The event started 9 years ago when four friends got together to try to help the children of the neighborhood. Now, organizers say they are able to give hundreds of kids the supplies they need to be successful in school.

"The accomplishment is to give these kids a great start," said Morris Pollard, Cann Park Young Men Alumnae Association. "And, by doing that, they kids have no excuse about going and being able to participate in all exercises."

All of the school supplies given away were donated. Organizers say around 300 children received everything they should need before they head back to school next week.
