Donations for Coast Guard Families

Donations for Coast Guard Families

The Mayor and City Council are asking city residents to consider donating items or gift cards to help those who protect our waters and borders – US Coast Guard. USCG continues to report to duty without pay during this shutdown. For many Coast Guard families this is their only income. The Sun Coast is covered by approximately 670 active duty personnel. City of St. Petersburg is home to one of the USCG largest commands with approximately 220 active duty personnel. Below is a suggested list of items that could help during these difficult times:

  • Gift Cards: Grocery (Public, Aldi, Winn Dixie, Walmart) and Gas Station
  • Non-perishable food items: Snacks for kid’s lunchboxes, coffee, protein bars, health snacks
  • Cleaning Items: paper towels, dish soap, hand soap, bathroom and kitchen cleaning products, laundry detergent
  • Toiletry items: toilet paper, feminine products, toothbrushes/toothpaste for adults and children, body soap, shampoo, conditioner
  • Baby items: diapers (all sizes) pull-ups (all sizes for both girl and boy) baby wipes

Collection boxes for tangible items are located in the basement of City Hall. Gift Cards – Please drop off gift cards only to the City Council Office at City Hall

You can donate directly to the Coast Guard at https://www.facebook.com/SunCoastCPOA/?ref=py_c

Any questions - contact Cindy Sheppard (City Council Admin Officer) at 893-7118. Thank you for helping out.

Residents can dispose of their Christmas trees during a free collection event on January 12. Simply put out the undecorated tree at the location where trash is usually collected.

Trees should be loose and not placed inside trash or recycling containers or against trees, electrical poles, other trash containers or water meters. All lights, ornaments, decorations, tree stands and plastic tree disposal bags must be removed from the tree before placing it out for collection. Holiday wreaths may be disposed of in trash containers. All collected trees will be turned into mulch, which is free to residents at the brush sites.
