The Clearwater Community Volunteers Help Children this Easter

Clearwater, Florida: The Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) brought Easter to 150 underprivileged children. Children at the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Police Athletic League (PAL) in Lealman, along with women and children from a domestic violence shelter are some of the kids that shared in the Easter fun.

Neil Brickfield, Sheriff’s PAL in Lealman stated: “What CCV did for the PAL kids was EGGSpectacular! They loved making their baskets and when the kids opened their eggs and found $5 inside, it was like every kid hit the LOTTO! We had a great time!”

Baskets were provided for the children to fill with Easter grass, and of course candy. Children also got to choose their own stuffed animal, a couple of whom went away with two.

After celebrating Easter with PAL, CCV volunteers gave children at The Haven, in Hope Villages of America, candy-filled Easter eggs for a hunt and gave the mothers a giant gold sparkling egg with $100, a manicure/pedicure voucher as well as candy inside. Families at The Haven were also given three hams, twenty pounds of potatoes, the fixings for a green bean casserole, fresh biscuits and three apple pies for their own Easter dinner. A Youth Advocate at The Haven said, “Treats like these help the children forget about abuse for a day.”
