On Saturday August 27th Nassau County and the Town of North Hempstead in partnership with Nassau County Police Unions, hosted its 3rd annual backpack give away at Martin "Bunky" Reid Park. The event included refreshments, a session from Skills for Safe Bicycling, and a special guest from TT Torrez and the Hot 97 street team. About 1,000 kids and their families turned out to partake in this joyous occasion, the town in conjoined with the county and the police department wants to make sure that the children in the community have what they need to start school. The event was created to inspire children to get excited about education and simultaneously an opportunity for the community to come together and have a good time before the school year starts.
