Outreach 2021


VABI Holiday Tree Lighting

For the second year, START members decorated a tree in Blalock Park for VABI's Holiday Tree Lighting. Members made ornaments and decorated the tree on November 30th and December 3rd. We hope you visited the park and our tree. It was hard to miss; it was the biggest and brightest, located at the south end near the manatee stature.  Members returned January 7th to take down the decorations until next year.


St. David's Jubilee Center

START members donated gently used clothing to St. David's Jubilee Center in Englewood. Thirty-four (34) bags of clothing were delivered to this worthy organization for people who need and deserve them. We hoped our donation helped to make the holidays a little brighter.
