CAMPBELL PARK RESOURCE CENTER
United Way Suncoast has developed Neighborhood-Based community initiatives to bring need services to areas of high need. At the resource centers we operate, we’re improving and empowering neighborhoods to create success and change.
On Jan. 13, 2017, Duke Energy Foundation and United Way Suncoast began a partnership committed to the development and sustainability south St. Petersburg’s Campbell Park Neighborhood. There was a need for a one-stop resource center, collaborating with community partners, to provide services for families working towards long-term financial stability. The Campbell Park Resource Center offers a variety of services such as free tax preparation, legal advice, family support services, a computer lab, food pantry, and more.
Individuals and small groups* can provide additional support through the following opportunities:
At the Campbell Park Resource Center, located on the campus of John Hopkins Middle School, one of the services provided is an indoor food pantry for the families of the school.
- Food Pantry: volunteers assist with various tasks while the pantry is open such as sanitizing, stocking shelves, assisting individuals/families, and other duties as needed. View available shifts that take place on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
- Greeter: volunteer will welcome the residents and visitors to the center and direct them to the correct offices within the CPRC building. Learn more
- Campbell Park Network for Early Learning: volunteers provide assist the Learn & Play Sessions that are designed to support parents/caregivers to play and interact with children in developmentally appropriate ways to encourage brain development and assist school readiness.
