CareFest® is a community outreach service program

For over 25 years, Somebody Cares Tampa Bay has mobilized local ministries, community agencies, and businesses to meet the practical needs of our communities through CareFest. The object of CareFest is to, literally, do all the good we can through all the means we can. 

Each year, Somebody Cares Tampa Bay sponsors a CareFest Day, a work day in which thousands of volunteers in different locations throughout our service area come together to beautify and repair homes and neighborhoods. These projects are identified through local government offices, ministries, and civic groups. At the end of the day, the volunteers and the homeowners come together to recognize and celebrate their accomplishments. Food and beverages are provided for all involved. These celebrations also provide opportunities for volunteers to meaningfully connect with people-in-need that live in their community.

However, the CareFest program is a year-round program, so volunteers can participate on their own schedule, as well!

CareFest® is a year-round event across Tampa Bay!

Approximately 5,000 volunteers and over 100 partners from civic groups, businesses, non-profits, and ministries are involved in CareFest on an annual basis. CareFest not only blesses the homeowners and the volunteers, but it serves to encourage a sense of unity and good will throughout Tampa Bay.
