Sixth Circuit Guardian ad Litem

The Guardian ad Litem Foundation of Tampa Bay serves thousands of children throughout Pinellas and Pasco Counties. One of the resources provided is a gifts and needs closet where foster children and/or their caregiver or guardian can go to "shop" new donated items. These items include clothes, toys, books, electronics, diapers, bedding, toiletries, and more.

Our closet has been closed for several months due to COVID-19 but we are looking to open it back up for "shopping" and need help getting it back in working order. If you have a knack for organization, we would love your help creating a visually appealing and easily accessible resource for these children.

Our closet is made up of 4 separate rooms which will allow for social distancing and our building does require masks.
