Clearwater, FL – On December 15th, the Clearwater Community Volunteers (CCV) and Scientology Volunteer Ministers (VMs) are reserving the afternoon at Downtown Clearwater’s Winter Wonderland for foster families and underprivileged youth. Guests will enjoy the Winter Wonderland activities as well as pictures with Santa and a toy giveaway. Winter Wonderland is located at Osceola Courtyard on the corner of N. Fort Harrison Ave. and Drew Street.

Winter Wonderland is a winter-themed village with over 100,000 sparkling lights and 100 live Christmas trees that is open three weeks each year for the Holiday Season in Downtown Clearwater. More than on hundred thousand families have come to this Holiday favorite over the last 25 years.

“For the last 3 years, we have partnered with CCV to have an afternoon dedicated to those children who might not have the holidays they deserve,” said Ms. Glendy Goodsell, Executive Director of the Scientology Volunteer Ministers. “Volunteers donate toys and their time so that these children can have an amazing Holiday Season.”

Activities go from 1:00pm-4:00pm and there is no cost to participate. Guests attending the afternoon activities for foster families and underprivileged youth must RSVP.

Outside of this special event, Winter Wonderland will be open every day from 6pm to 9pm through December 22nd, except on Mondays and Tuesdays. Admission is free but there is a small charge for some activities and the food items in the Hot Chocolate Shop (cash-only transactions).
