Clearwater Community Volunteers Prepares Foster & Adoptive Families For School
By: Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization
The festivities will start at 4PM in the Courtyard adjacent to the CCV Center, with activities such as face painting, pony rides, petting zoo and a bouncy house prior to the backpack distribution.
"There are 14,000 kids in the foster care system in Florida," said Clearwater Community Volunteers Center Manager Michael Soltero. "It can be a hard time for them, especially if they are starting at a new school or are with a new family. School supplies give a level of security, and we are happy to help Pinellas County Foster kids get a new start on their school year."
"Humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard wrote 'Today's children will become tomorrow's civilization. Children can't handle their environment and they have no real resources. They need love and help to make it,'" said Mr. Soltero. To reserve for the event please contact Clemence Chevrot, ccvdirector@
All foster and adoptive families are welcome to join the event. Visitors are also invited to tour the center at 133 N. Fort Harrison, Clearwater, FL 33755.
