Unveiled in 2011, Replay Tampa Bay is an annual sporting goods drive that collects new and gently used sporting goods in an effort to keep kids active and“in the game”. Thanks to the partnership and teamwork between the Tampa Bay Sports Commission, Elder Automotive, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Tampa Bay Rays, and the Tampa Bay Lightning, over 3000 items have been collected and distributed to local kids in need since 2011. 

Previously, Metropolitan Ministries, Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office Charities, Pinellas Sheriff’s Police Athletic League, Rich Houses and the Family Enrichment Center have been the selected recipients, and in-turn hosted distribution events on their respective campuses. In March, 2014 Replay Tampa Bay officially became a year-round donation program. 


SUPER KIDS-SUPER SHARING

Community partners are teaming up with the National Football League, Tampa Bay Super Bowl LV Host Committee and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a Super Bowl project that puts books, sports equipment, school supplies and games in the hands of local children. The project, called Super Kids-Super Sharing, has been implemented in every Super Bowl host community for the past 22 years and area residents are invited to help.

Beginning on “Giving Tuesday,” Dec. 1, through Friday, Dec. 18, Super Kids partners will host collections at their facilities. Donated items will be shared with the children they serve and with Replay Tampa Bay and Boys and Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay. Participating in this effort are the YMCAs of Tampa Bay, Hillsborough Education Foundation, Hillsborough County Parks and Recreation, City of Tampa Parks and Recreation, the City of Tampa, Keep Tampa Bay Beautiful and numerous schools in the Diocese of St. Petersburg.  

New and very gently used books appropriate for school children, sports equipment of all types, school supplies and board and video games can be dropped off at the following locations and times: CLICK HERE
