Clearwater, FL, April 19, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- On April 16th, the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) had their first Easter egg stuffing session in the CCV Center in downtown Clearwater. Volunteers banded together to fill 2000 plastic eggs with candy, marking the first milestone for the 30,000 eggs needed for the 27th Annual Ginormous Easter Egg Hunt in Coachman park.
12 volunteers began the week-long egg stuffing project for the hunt, which is only a small part of the logistics needed to put on the event for the 8000 or so Greater Tampa Bay Area visitors every year.
Pam Ryan-Anderson, Executive Director of the Clearwater Community Volunteers said, “Preparations for the Easter Egg Hunt, one of our three signature events, starts months in advance. We use these events to provide a safe and fun environment for children, and any funds generated go towards supporting children through non-profit organizations like the Children’s Home Network.”
The hunt itself is free to enter while small fees are collected for attractions. The funds raised are donated back to local charities.
“Over the course of 27 years, CCV’s Easter Egg Hunt has grown into a community favorite.” said Clemence Chevrot, Director of the CCV Center. “Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard wrote in his book The Way to Happiness that one should ‘Love and Help Children’, which is what we do through our events.”
Coachman Park will open at 11:00 am for children to take their places, and the hunt will begin at 12:30 pm.
Several charities that work with the CCV Center will hold booths near the waterfront in Coachman Park for attendees to learn about what they do to help the community.
