Give nurses a hand, earn a free Disney pass
The National Black Nurses Tampa Bay Chapter Inc. is searching for volunteers to bring 20 nonperishable items of food (no glass, please) and any gently used clothing to donate to a program for a low-income neighborhood. Volunteers will sort, package and distribute food and clothing from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday at the Westminster Apartments, 200 Westminster Blvd., Oldsmar. Volunteers must be ages 14 and up according to one of the organizers, Gayle Robinson. Volunteers should wear close-toed shoes and anyone age 17 and under must be accompanied by an adult. But before you volunteer, you must register because it's part of the Give a Day, Get a Disney Day volunteer program. Volunteers in programs designated by Disney get a free pass to one of the theme parks. If you go to the Disney Web site and then type in the zip code 34677, the event should pop up. For more information on Saturday's volunteer effort, call (813) 888-7002 or (813) 546-0277.
