Want to get a workout while helping someone in need? This Saturday, August 20th First Nesters is helping a young woman turn her empty apartment into a warm and inviting space for her to call home. We need volunteers to help us move furniture from Bayshore to Marcia’s apartment. The time commitment is typically less than 4 hours beginning at 8:30am. Here’s an opportunity for students to earn their required community service hours. Call or text Gloria Scarle at 813-505-7441 to sign up ASAP.

  • Got Old Athletic Shoes? Bayshore Youth announce a used athletic shoe drive! If you have extra sneakers in your closet, garage, locker, gym bag—even if they’re dirty or old—don’t throw them away. Bring them to our collection baskets, and we can recycle them to raise money for youth events. The athletic shoe recycling program helps keep shoes out of landfills, which has harmful effects on our environment, AND helps raise money for Bayshore Youth events. It’s a win-win for everyone! Tell your friends and neighbors!
