The third annual Giving Tour (a project of the year-round resource program It’s Cool Having Tools) ­has worked with local agencies to identify more than 400 kids who will be given a free lunch, as well as a toy or bicycle (for younger kids) ­ or a new MP3 player (for older kids), in addition to games including 3-on-3 basketball and group dance competitions spun by a popular DJ, guest community speakers, and performances from young local artists.
