ORLANDO, Fla. -

The Florida Family Policy Council is distributing free Bibles at several public high schools in Orange and Collier counties.

The Bibles are being made available for students to pick up during lunch periods on Thursday at nine schools in Orange County and eight schools in Collier County. The distribution is recognition of Religious Freedom Day.

The council's officials say volunteers will leave the Bibles on tables at each school, with a sign indicating they are free and can be taken by students.
