Clearwater Community Volunteers Helps Foster Parents Association Get Kids Back-to-School

The Clearwater Community Volunteers and PCFAPA partner to give away school supplies to over 80 foster families in Pinellas County.

Clearwater, FL, August 04, 2020 --( Ensuring each child has the items they need to start the upcoming school year, the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) assisted the Pinellas County Foster and Adoptive Parents Association (PCFAPA), a Clearwater-based foster parents association, to gather funds for their back-to-school supplies giveaway. The supplies, gathered by CCV were given away to PCFAPA’s families on August 1st.

PCFAPA provides training, support and activities for their member foster and adoptive families. They strive to provide parents with the necessary resources to deal with challenges they face in raising children in need of care and guidance.

Dora Starling, President of PCFAPA, said “This was an amazing opportunity for our families and we’re all grateful for it. School supplies, especially when purchased for more than one child, can cost a fortune and with the Clearwater Community Volunteers helping us, the cost was cut down substantially for our families.”

Over 80 children and families received the school supplies they needed to return to school at home or otherwise. The supplies consisted of spiral-bound notebooks, folders, pencils, crayons and more.

“PCFAPA supports its families in more ways than one can count.” said Michael Soltero, Manager of the CCV Center. “In its mission to pave the road to success for foster and adoptive families, PCFAPA helps to take care of basic necessities like school supplies in the best interest of both parents and children. As Humanitarian L. Ron Hubbard once 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.’”
