ST. PETERSBURG — Members of the Suncoast Chapter of Jack and Jill of America, Inc., will come together as volunteers for a workday at the St. Pete Youth Farm this Saturday, Jan. 15, from 10-12 p.m.
Jack and Jill of America is an organization of mothers dedicated to raising the next generation of African-American leaders while enhancing the lives of all children. Through participating in acts of service, the youth will grow to value the importance of giving back to the community in which they live.
More than 50 volunteers from the Suncoast chapter will spend the day tending to the garden at the St. Pete Youth Farm, an organization founded in 2019 to provide access to nutritious food in south St. Petersburg and develop future leaders in the community. The chapter is also making a gift of $1,000 and an additional $500 in gardening tools to help sustain the farm’s mission and efforts.
The Suncoast chapter is proud to commemorate Dr. King’s National Day of Service and his vision of a “Beloved Community” by uplifting the St. Pete Youth Farm through this service opportunity.
Additionally, members will celebrate Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. by walking in St. Petersburg’s Martin Luther King Jr. Dream Big Parade on Monday, Jan. 17, beginning at 11 a.m. For several years, the Suncoast Chapter of Jack and Jill, Inc. has provided opportunities for its children and families to learn about Dr. King and to honor his legacy through service to our community.
Join the Suncoast chapter on Saturday at the St. Pete Youth Farm, located at 1664 12th St. S.
