The HCBA Community Services Committee organizes several projects throughout the year to help various groups in the Tampa Bay area. This year, the committee plans to participate in:

Adopt A Veteran (October 28, 2017) - Part of Make a Difference Day, this project involves “adopting” veterans living in foster homes in the Tampa area. These veterans have very limited funds, so the committee aims to fulfill their wish lists through this program. Learn more about this program.

Elves for Elders (December 2017) - Through Aging Solutions Inc., the committee works to provide gifts and holiday cheer to more than 200 elderly wards of the state. Learn more about this effort.

Dining with Dignity at Trinity Cafe (March 2018) - Volunteers dedicate just a few hours of their time to serve meals to to the homeless, hungry, and working poor. The meals are prepared by a professional chef, and guests sit at cloth-covered tables set with china dishes and silverware. Learn more about this opportunity.

A Pirate Plunder Party at A Kid's Place (May 2018) - This daylong party benefits the children at A Kid's Place, a foster care facility for abused, abandoned, and neglected children. Volunteers coordinate games, food, and fun for the youngsters living at the facility. Learn more about A Kid's Place.

Benchmarks (year-round) - This initiative by The Florida Bar aims to increase public awareness of how the government and courts work. Volunteers are needed to give prepared presentations to local adult civic and community groups. Learn more about this program.
