Tampa Bay Charity Coalition Celebrates Local Charities for International Day of Charity
By: Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization
The International Day of Charity was established to recognize the role of charity in alleviating humanitarian crises and human suffering within and among nations. The date of 5 September was chosen to commemorate the passing of Mother Teresa of Calcutta, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1979 "for work undertaken in the struggle to overcome poverty and distress, which also constitute a threat to peace."
"Mother Teresa once said: 'I can do things you cannot, you can do things I cannot; together we can do great things'," said Clemence Chevrot, Director of the Tampa Bay Charity Coalition and the Community Affairs Director for the Church of Scientology Flag Service Organization. "As we approach the 6th Anniversary celebration of the Tampa Bay Charity Coalition I wanted to acknowledge those who proved that together as a coalition we can do great things for our community."
Awardees include Alisa Savoretti, founder of My Hope Chest, a charity that helps women have closure to their breast cancer journey and Tranette Engram, founder of She Helps Empower, a charity that encourages women and young women in the Tampa Bay area to realize their value and reach their potential through job training and education.
The full list of awardees is available on the Tampa Bay Charity Coalition page www.facebook.com/
