GFWC NTJWC Storytime with Santa
December 15, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pmFree
The GFWC New Tampa Junior Woman’s Club is a 501(c)(3), nonprofit organization dedicated to community improvement by enhancing the lives of others through volunteer service.
We have an exciting family friendly, holiday event planned for December 15, 2019. It is our Second Annual Storytime with Santa at Fire Station 22 located at 10871 Cross Creek Blvd, Tampa, Florida 33647.
The purpose of the event is to promote literacy in support of the GFWC Florida Junior Director’s Project, “Book Heroes.” We will have three story times with Santa reading 2 books each, a holiday book and a book about fire safety.
The story times are 11:15 am, 12:15 pm and 1:15 pm. We will have games, crafts, cookies and hot chocolate. The fire fighters will be on hand and children will be able to “touch a truck.”
This event is FREE to the public. Book (new and gently used) and monetary donations will be accepted. All book donations will be used for our Little Free Library at the New Tampa YMCA or will be donated to schools and charities in the local community. Last year we received over 240 book donations.
All monetary funds go back to our community through volunteer service projects.
Examples of organizations we have helped this past year include Athena House – Tampa Crossroads, Children’s Cancer Center in Tampa, Feeding Tampa Bay, Full Circle Food Outreach, Habitat for Humanity, Honor Flight, Liberty Manor, HOBY, Lacoochee Elementary School, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, March of Dimes, Meals on Wheels, OASIS, Prevent Child Abuse America, Project Have Hope, Redefining Refuge, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Sunrise Domestic Violent Center, The STANO Foundation, Tampa Police Department R.I.C.H. House, The Legacy at Highwoods Preserve Assisted Living Facility, Trinity Cafe, Unicef, V.I.S.T.A Gardens and the list goes on!
Hope to see you there.
