Organizers for Humboldt Park's fifth annual Hopefest passed out classroom supplies day as students were told they must attend when school opens for the new academic year Tuesday.A big crowd turned out as boys and girls received school necessities, which they could store in their new, free backpacks.

The supplies were donated by area businesses, churches, and non-profit organizations.

To make sure that the students could see well enough to learn properly, they were given free vision tests, as well.
