The Community Volunteer Corps has been supporting homeless and underprivileged students in Pasco County for the past five years.  We have supplied these children with some of the basic tools such as Hygiene kits, back packs, school supplies and new clothing.  We have been endorsed and supported by:  Mike Fasano, Tax Collector; Chris Nocco, Sheriff; several County Commissioners and Pasco Schools Superintendent Kurt Browning.  We know that for the past five years we have made a difference in these students’ lives and helped them to succeed in school and help break the cycle of poverty.  Unfortunately we have lost our housing and find it necessary to merge with another 501c3 volunteer organization named Operation Unwrap a Smile also based here in Pasco County.  This organization is run by Pastor Herb Roshell and his wife Stephanie.  The Community Volunteer Corps has been partnering with them for the past three years.  Not only do they support our mission but go the extra step by helping the homeless in the woods and shelters, and the Sheriff’s Youth Ranches.  They also feed the homeless.  We hope that you will continue to support Operation Unwrap a Smile as you did the Community Volunteer Corps.

Thank you and God bless,

Donato “Dan” Dede, President
