The CareFest celebration of volunteering in St. Petersburg runs from September 1 through October 31. The City facilitates community outreach CareFest projects that help homeowners with minor home repairs, yardwork and painting through in-kind donations and volunteers. Each year, volunteers complete more than 400 projects throughout the Tampa Bay area.
City employees and volunteers staff the N-Team to help preserve and improve the health of City neighborhoods all year. Residents can apply for the following services year-round: exterior painting, carpentry, handicap access ramps, minor roof repairs and patching, roof tarps, minor plumbing, junk/trash and debris removal, overgrowth removal and code violation repairs. Free home improvement services are available to homeowners who are elderly, disabled or low-income. Homeowners complete an online application.
