postcard, St. Petersburg (Fla.), community action


Mark your calendars because on Saturday, Feb. 18, the New Roots News team hosts its third Contribute Community Action event at The Studio@620 from 7–10 p.m. If you’re not familiar with Contribute, it’s a public event that aims to inform and educate Tampa Bay Area residents about local people, businesses, projects and organizations. There are so many incredible things going on in the bay area and the folks at New Roots want as many people as possible to know about them! Contribute is also a great place to meet neighbors, network, and learn how to get involved to help make St. Pete and its sister cities a better place. Each Contribute has a sub-theme that falls under the general idea of community action and participation. The first event focused on public journalism and news media, the second on entrepreneurs and innovators. This third event celebrates collaboration!
