The Florida Family Policy Council is distributing free Bibles at several public high schools in Collier and Orange counties.
The Bibles are being made available for students to pick up during lunch periods on Thursday at eight schools in Collier County and nine schools in Orange 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.
The Collier County School District was sued in 2010 for prohibiting Bible distribution on its campuses. The district later settled with the Christian group, World Changers of Florida, allowing the group to leave Bibles in Collier middle and high schools on Religious Freedom Day. Students can take a Bible if they wish.
