Children and parents alike came to Attorney Mike Hostilo’s offices between three to six p.m. on Wednesday to receive new gear to take back to the classroom next week.
They also got to meet local rapper Ricky Willis, the voice behind Hostilo’s well-known commercials seen on T.V.
Book bags were distributed on a first come, first serve basis.
This was the fifth annual book bag drive that the local attorney has done.
“Every year…” Rapper Ricky Ellis said, “Mike loves to see the smiles on the children’s faces and this is something about…when you see the little children and they come in ‘oh you’re on t.v. and where is Mike?’ It’s good stuff. And his background, his upbringing…he’s just a fan of the children, so he’s always giving back. Always.”
