Bucs step up to support students

TAMPA

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers sent a delegation that included their Captain Fear mascot and cheerleaders to Booker T. Washington Elementary School on Monday to kick off their "Bucs Care School" effort.

Twenty-one schools will receive assistance that includes vision exams and eyeglasses, covered physical education courts and a Bucs backpack for each child.

Guests at the morning assembly included former B.T. Washington student Doretha Edgecomb, now a member of the Hillsborough County School Board, who told the children, "You're special because you're smart. You're special because you're kind. You're special because a lot of people believe in you and you believe in yourself."
