MIAMI (CBSMiami) — For South Florida families, back-to-school costs can be tough to tackle, yet others cannot afford these necessary items at all.

Our Kids of Miami-Dade and Monroe Inc. and Neat Stuff uniform store have came to the rescue Friday for nearly 2,000 Miami adoptive and foster kids.

The kids received about $120 worth of clothes, including five shirts and three pairs of pants during the giveaway.

Event organizers estimated they supplied more than $200,000 worth of uniforms.

To save on back-to-school costs, be sure to see the bottom of our back-to-school deals article.
