• Hootie's Homegrown Roundup 2019

  • Hootie's 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.
