Hootie's Homegrown Roundup 2019
Charleston County School District (CCSD) hosted the 13th Annual Hootie and the Blowfish Homegrown Roundup at Burke High School August 17, 2019, to help better prepare students for the 2019-2020 school year.
The Roundup provides services and back-to-school supplies for 1,000 students from CCSD Title 1 schools. Services and supplies were donated by the band Hootie & the Blowfish and various local community businesses that included, haircuts, dental evaluations, eye exams, backpacks filled with school supplies.
Hootie & the Blowfish are one of the most successful music groups of all time selling over 25 million albums world‐wide. The band believes they have a responsibility to use their celebrity status to help improve the lives of those in need, especially children. This type of philanthropic spirit led the band to establish Hootie’s Homegrown Roundup: Back to School Basics in 2007.
