Valdosta, Georgia - August 13, 2011
The 4th Annual Kids are People Too Fair drew over 100 children to Drexel Park.
School supplies and books were handed out. Officials also raised awareness to fight homelessness.
"[There are] many kids in the area that don't have access to the things they need for school," says Martel Peterson, a case manager with the South Georgia Partnership to End Homelessness. "We're here to help out with that and therefore in turn help maybe keep up a higher grade point average cause they have the supplies they need."
Officials estimate there are between 300 and 400 homeless people in the Lowndes County area.
