Tea Party is the 'Bee's Knees' for Literacy at the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center
The Clearwater Community Volunteers Center will host a tea party on August 17th to help gather school supplies to the benefit of Bee's Learning, a not-for-profit mobile tutoring service for underprivileged children.
By: Church of Scientology FSO
Founded in 2017, Bee's Learning provides free tutoring for low income Pinellas County students who are getting a "C" or lower in the classes. Certified Teachers mentor the students in a mobile RV fully repurposed to provide literacy on wheels. The school supplies will be used by the students who attend the tutoring sessions.
"In today's high-speed society having proper school supplies facilitates learning," said Michael Soltero, Manager of the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center. "In fact a study done by the Kids in Need Foundation in 2017 found that 75% of school teachers agreed that having the necessary school supplies had a definite impact a child's interest in learning.'"
The last tea party held in the CCV center helped gather enough school supplies for 40 foster children, to be later given away at their Back to School Bash benefitting Foster Families.
The tea party will be Winnie the Pooh and honey bee-themed – a play on the benefiting nonprofit's name.
If you would like to attend the tea party, or to donate school supplies please call Clemence Chevrot at (727) 316-5309 or email ccvdirector@
