CLEARWATER, Fla., Oct. 10, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- On Tuesday, October 8, Bee’s Learning of St. Petersburg received school supplies for 40 children. The donations came from engaged citizens who attended a tea party for just this purpose at the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) Center in downtown Clearwater.

“The Bee’s Learning program is made possible by the hard work of volunteer teachers who care about the future of our youth,” said Michael Soltero, the Director of the Clearwater Community Volunteers Center. “Often teachers have to pull out their wallet to provide school supplies to their classrooms, so we thought we could help alleviate that cost.”  

Bee’s Learning will be hosting their Annual Queen Bee Sunday Tea at 4 pm on October 13, 2019 at Nova 535 in St. Petersburg. Those looking to support the program can do so by becoming a corporate sponsor or purchase a ticket at www.beeslearning.org.

Serving as a no-cost event venue and meeting space for Tampa Bay nonprofits, the CCV Center facilitates the growth of their community outreach through fundraisers and supply drives.

The next event in the CCV Center will be the Hispanic Heritage Open House where families can enjoy family fun and complimentary refreshments.

If you would like to attend the Hispanic Heritage Open House or find out more information about the CCV Center please call Clemence Chevrot at (727) 316-5309 or email ccvdirector@ccvfl.org.
