School Supply Drive with Hillsborough Education Foundation
We’re thrilled to host a supply drive in collaboration with HEF (Hillsborough Education Foundation) to ensure that local students start the school year with the essential tools they need for success. No need to bring supplies! You can stop by our pop-up shop in Raybon Plaza, to purchase pre-built supply kits. By supporting HEF, you’ll make a meaningful difference in the lives of students and contribute to their academic journey.
Interactive Experience with Tampa Bay Watch
Get ready for an interactive pop-up experience with Tampa Bay Watch, where kids will have the unique opportunity to dive into the fascinating world of invertebrates. Through hands-on activities and engaging demonstrations, children will learn about these incredible creatures and their importance in our ecosystem.
After School Programs and Information from the YMCA
Moreover, the YMCA will have a setup to support parents with information on after-school programs, swim safety, and other enriching activities for kids. Parents can explore the various offerings, ensuring their children have engaging and constructive activities outside of school hours. And for the little ones, there’s a fun-filled kids activity zone, packed with games, crafts, and interactive play areas.
‘Where Love Grows’ Information and Ways to Support
Discover the heartwarming initiatives of the “Where Love Grows” booth, where you’ll have the opportunity to learn about their incredible program.

Kids’ Art Exhibit
Lastly, get ready to be amazed by a special kids’ arts display, including artwork from students with exceptional abilities (ESE) who participated in the summer arts programs around Pinellas County. This inclusion of diverse and unique talents celebrates the creativity of all young minds and highlights the power of art as a form of expression and communication.
Mark your calendars and bring the whole family to The Market featuring a Back to School event! Education, community engagement, arts, science, nutrition, and a lot of fun await you.
