Clearwater, Florida - It's the time of year when 10 News gets to give some area charities good news. And on Tuesday night the recipient was Julie Weintraub and her group Hands Across the Bay.

10 News General Manager Elliott Wiser presented Weintraub with a $10,000 check from the Gannett Foundation. Gannett is the parent company of 10 News.

Weintraub says the money will help boost families throughout the Bay Area. Her group provides all sorts of assistance to help people get back on their feet.

"Maybe it will buy some work boots, so a father can get a construction job, or a suit, so they can go on a job interview," she said.

Weintraub added that her group is also starting a new initiative aimed at combatting domestic violence.
