Gasparilla has come and gone for another year — but contributing toward the celebration doesn’t have to be over. As proud Tampa Bay residents, keeping our area clean + beautiful is something we all want. Here are a few ways to help with the post-Gaspy cleanup:
- Friends of the Tampa Riverwalk and Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful are partnering up for a Riverwalk cleanup this Saturday, Feb. 3, starting at USF Park. Make sure to sign up.
- Small businesses are also doing their part — Cali and Fresh Kitchen are collecting leftover beads which will be donated to the MacDonald Training Center to be cleaned + repackaged for future use.
- We already wrote about this one, but the Florida Aquarium is asking for beads in exchange for discounted admission.
- There are several other bead drop-off locations around Tampa — including the Copeland Park Community Center (1101 N. 15th St.), and the Kate Jackson Community Center (831 S. Rome Ave.).
