Community Outreach
The Garden Club of St. Petersburg hosts multiple fundraising events. The funds members raise from your generous donations as well as the Plant Sale, Christmas Recycle Plus Plus Sale, and Flea Market enable the members to be active in our community outreach projects. This is only made possible by the volunteer hours of service by all our members.

Daystar depends on in-kind donations of good used clothing, household items, personal care products, and non-perishable food, in addition to monetary contributions to fulfill its mission of helping our neighbors in need.

The Daystar Life Center located at 1055 28th St. S in St. Petersburg has a food pantry and supplies of basic clothing and personal care items. We always need canned tuna or chicken, dry pasta and jars of sauce, all varieties of chunky soups, peanut butter, and mac and cheese to send home with clients. We supplement with frozen meat, fresh produce, and baked goods we receive from local supermarkets and food banks. We can even re-use your plastic grocery bags. The clothes closet at the Life Center stocks many sizes of basics such as shirts, pants, and shoes. Blankets, gloves, hats, and sleeping bags are in demand in the winter. We have an ongoing need for men’s jeans in small waist sizes, ladies pants in large waist sizes, and sturdy backpacks.

We welcome your donations of personal care items. We need infant and adult diapers, razors and shaving cream, toothpaste and toothbrushes, soap, shampoo and conditioner, deodorant, tampons, and pads, in both individual & family sizes. Products purchased at dollar stores or provided in hotel rooms are ideal for our use. Drop off your donations at the Daystar Life Center.

Daystar now accepts donations of your old vehicle that is still running and in reasonably good condition. Call Tony Bond, a licensed wholesale car dealer and Daystar volunteer at (727) 692-8919. He will determine if your vehicle will sell at auction and arrange for it to be towed. Daystar receives the auction proceeds, less a small fee and the donor receives a receipt that determines the fair market value of the vehicle for federal income tax purposes. (in-kind)
