About 44 businesses and local organizations rallied together to provide school supplies for area children. Last year's event attracted about 740 youth, and Callaway Action Network Director Julie Roark said SERVE always prepares for 800 children each year. In addition to school supplies, children received free hair cuts and eye and dental exams.
