Children will receive an award for participating and food and treats will be distributed. Artwork created as part of HTAP’s ARTREACH programs will be displayed.” The grant also supports informational handouts in English and Spanish which teaches parents and children. Human trafficking is a gowing problem in Florida, especially among children between the ages of 11 and 15.
