Clothes to Kids needs volunteers

Clothes to Kids, which provides free clothing to low-income Pinellas County children, is seeking volunteers. The organization offers a variety of volunteer opportunities at its Clearwater store to match almost any schedule and skill level including stockroom, service, administrative, marketing and fundraising. In addition to the many adult volunteer opportunities, the group offers high-school students a chance to volunteer. For information, visit or call Leslie Bednarski at (727) 441-5050, ext. 23.

Learn about the history of the SAT

Learning more about the SAT might be one way to prepare for that grueling experience. Eliot Schrefer, author of the book Hack the SAT, will speak at the Countryside library at 2 p.m. Sunday. Schrefer, also a private tutor, will discuss the SAT and college admissions, as well as the history and controversy surrounding the test. Schrefer, who lives in New York, is a graduate of Countryside High and Harvard. For information, call (727) 669-1290.
