In March, Cahoon Elementary School fourth-grader Anaijah Harris wrote a letter to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, asking the team to donate items that could be used as performance incentives for her classmates. Cahoon is a Title I school, with 80 percent of its enrollment on a free or reduced lunch program, and Anaijah believed any added motivation would go a long way toward helping the students succeed.
On Wednesday, Anaijah and her classmates lined up outside the school doors in anticipation of the team’s response. What they received was a busload of Buccaneers.
Buccaneers S Mark Barron, RB Doug Martin, LB Lavonte David, and the entire rookie class continued their efforts to give back to the local community by visiting Cahoon Elementary School in Tampa. The players thanked Anaijah for her letter by spending the afternoon at the school, where they reinforced the importance of making smart decisions and staying productive by visiting classrooms and leading students in field day activities as part of the school’s year-end celebration.
