Free Life Jackets, School Supplies and Backpacks in St. Pete
There’s no word on how many of the life jackets will be available on the St. Pete Parks & Recreation site. They just say the jackets will be free “while supplies last” so arriving early is a good plan.
Tomorrow, St. Petersburg Parks & Recreation will be handing out free life jackets. Head to the Northwest Pool at 2331 60th Street North from 4 to 6pm. There will be a free water safety course. No registration for the course or life jacket is required.
St. Petersburg Parks & Recreation is also hosting a free school supplies and backpack giveaway for students Sunday, August 6 from 4 to 7pm at the Bay Vista Recreation Center at 7000 4th Street in St. Pete. Students from kindergarten to 8th grade can get their back to school items and there will be free food, a bounce house and music. You do need to register for this one by August 3 using this link.
If you have any questions about the giveaways, you can e-mail St. Pete Parks & Recreation at firstname.lastname@example.org. Their phone number listed on their website and Facebook page (727-893-7441) appears to have been disconnected.
