Community Service within Tampa Bay – How You Can Help Out This Holiday Season

Need service hours for school? Want something to do? Or just in the mood to give back to your community and create smiles? Community service opportunities are everywhere, but sometimes they can be hard to find. We have collected a few in the Tampa Bay area for this holiday season. Mark your calendars!

Silent Disco

Oct. 31, 7 – 11:45 p.m.

Don’t miss out on this weekend’s opportunity at the Tampa Museum of Art. They are seeking 20 volunteers (18 years or older) to help assist the fundraiser that supports K-12 student educational visits to the TMA. Also, wear a Halloween costume!

Lucky Dog Casino Night

Nov. 5, 10 a.m. – 10 p.m.

Frainkie’s Friends needs volunteers for their downtown tampa casino night that will raise money to save Tampa Bay pets whose families can no longer afford to upkeep their pet’s needs and healthcare.

4th Annual Strides for Education Walk

Nov. 14, 7:30 a.m. – noon

Hillsborough County Public Schools are looking for roughly about 115 volunteers to pitch tents, unload materials, work the check-in area, help clean up, and more. Located at the Amalie Arena Plaza, this fundraiser wishes to raise $1 million. With a goal like that, they are more than welcome to take on many helpers – bring your friends!

Gratitude Stroll on the Riverwalk

Nov. 21, 3:45 – 8:30 p.m.

The MacDonald Training Center will be hosting its fundraising event to support go-to services for adults with disabilities. In appreciation, neighboring restaurants will be offering complimentary drinks, appetizers and samples of entrées, or discounted menus to strollers. The Tampa Theater will be also offering a BOGO on their evening screening to finish off the night.

“Girls on the Run” 5k Marathon

Dec. 12, 7:30 – 9 a.m.

Calling all athletes, light-joggers, and walkers, head over to HCC-Dale Mabry across from the Raymond James Stadium to support and empower women everywhere. Participate and earn a medal and t-shirt, or volunteer to bring smiles.

Don’t forget that just because the weather has become nippy, it does not mean dogs want to bundle up for the winter. Animal shelters will still need dog walkers.this holiday season to keep the pups healthy and happy.

Do you have service ideas we missed? Or, does your event in the Tampa Bay area need volunteers? Sound off in the comments!
