Care Fair

In 1997, the Junior League of St. Petersburg saw an opportunity to help local children reach educational success by coordinating a free Back to School Care Fair. Since then, the number of children served has annually and steadily increased into the thousands and so have the financial needs. The goal of Care Fair has always been to prepare students K-12 with the necessary resources to start the school year ready for success. Over the last 27 years, Care Fair has provided more than an estimated 8,200 medical or dental exams, 31,300 backpacks with school supplies, distributed thousands of age-appropriate chapter books and dedicated countless volunteer hours to the children and families most in need of these resources.
