Helping Out Our Community
Relevant serves its community, it’s part of our DNA. One of our favorite service opportunities happens on the second Saturday of every month. We creatively call it, “Second Saturday.” A Second Saturday project could include light home repair such as painting, maintenance, or landscaping. On occasion, we even work to identify ways to serve local businesses in Ybor City.
By having a regular, on-going service projects, we are able to mobilize volunteers throughout the year to meet needs in our community. Click here to sign up for our next project, or to receive more information.
Ms Ruby’s House - Ms. Ruby, affectionately known as “Mama Joy”, is 67 and cares for 11 great nieces and great nephews whose ages range from infant to 13. With the help of countless donations, over 140 volunteers, and many committed sponsors God allowed us to completely gut and rehab Ms. Ruby's house, which was built in 1918. It was a joy to help someone who helps so many. This renovation represented the 7th year in a row that Relevant had completed a similar project around Mother’s Day for a well deserving mother or grandmother in our community.

Samaritan’s Feet - God provided two opportunities in 2015 to partner with Samaritan's Feet (www.samaritansfeet.org) and the Davin Joseph Foundation (www.davinsdreamteam.org) to help distribute shoes. The first was held at Central Tampa Baptist in conjunction with the NCAA Women’s Final Four and over 800 pair of shoes were distributed to local families in need. The second opportunity came in August as we served students at the Department of Children and Services and Springhill Park Community Center in Sulphur Springs. As a result, an additional 750 shoes were distributed. A unique component of this distribution was the opportunity recipients had to have their feet washed by volunteers as an act of servant leadership modeled by Jesus.
Robles Park - In 2015 we began partnering with Van Dyke United Methodist Church on the 2nd Saturday of every month to offer crafts, games, and Bible stories to children in the Robles Park community. Many students in this area also attend Broward Elementary so God has used this to help build a stronger bridge of support and encouragement in this community.
