Jaymi Butler



Looking for some meaningful ways to help your friends and neighbors? The Catalyst has got you covered. Whether you’ve got lots of spare time or only a few hours here and there, our Impact Connector is chock full of ideas on how you can get involved and give back to your community. Here are five suggestions:

  • Start rounding up your unused electronics for Gadgets for Good. Digital Inclusion St. Pete will host its next drive-through Gadgets for Good drive Saturday, March 13 at 10 a.m. at the Center for Health Equity at 2333 34th St. South. They’ll take your old computers and electronic equipment – both working and broken – and recycle them to share with community members in need. For more information, click here
  • Help out with the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program. This program provides meaningful opportunities to people 55 years and older to participate in the community through volunteer service. Volunteers can share their skills and talents in a variety of areas including food distribution and delivery, tutoring and mentoring and working with nonprofits. Click here to learn more. 
  • Drive patients to appointments for Neighborly. Neighborly, a provider of home and community-based services for seniors, is looking for drivers to take its clients to and from medical appointments and pharmacies located. Volunteers can choose the region they wish to serve, and they typically assist for two to four hours per week between 8:45 a.m. and 4 p.m. To find out more about this opportunity and to submit an application, click here
