Since 1990, the YMCA of Greater St. Petersburg’s Neighbor-to-Neighbor Christmas program has been brightening the holidays for those in need, with Christmas trees & ornaments, gift cards for food, toys and much more. Tampa Metro Civitan has served on the planning committee for this important community program since it’s inception; the only volunteer organization to be involved since the beginning. The program now benefits approximately 400 families with 900 children.
Tampa Metro co-sponsors the volunteer t-shirts, donates money to “sponsor” families, donates and collects toys for the “Toy Box” drive. On Tree Delivery Day, we join other volunteers to deliver the trees, ornaments and other items to families across the county. Before Christmas we set up the Toy Box with donated toys, then help the families select toys for their children as well as vouchers for classes at the Y, such as dance, swimming or soccer.
We truly enjoy helping share Christmas joy to so many.
We Would Love to Have You at a meeting or project!
