Clearwater, FL, July 13, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- To provide needed school supplies for Pinellas County foster children, the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) will host a tea party on July 14th and collect school supplies for the July 27th “Back to School Bash Festival.” Tea party festivities will include tea along with a selection of finger sandwiches, pastries and freshly made crepes.
There is no cost to attend, but each guest is asked to bring school supplies to benefit foster and adoptive families in the Tampa Bay area. These supplies will be distributed at the Back to School Bash on Saturday July 27th.
“School supplies play an important part of a child’s education,” said Michael Soltero, Manager of the CCV Center. “A study by the Sun Sentinel found that kids starting the year without the proper school supplies lacked confidence and self-esteem because they felt at a disadvantage without their own school basics.”
“This is even truer for foster children,” continued Soltero. “They can be in families with 3-5 sometimes even 7 siblings and have a greater likelihood to start the school year without the supplies they need to succeed. And with only 50% of foster children graduating high school, as reported by “Youth today”, the need of encouraging those students to get through high school is more important than ever.”
If you would like to attend the tea party, or would like to make a donation of school supplies for foster families please contact Clemence at the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center (727) 316-5309.
