Making a Difference in 30 Minutes a Week


We all want to give back to our community, but as another year arrives, let’s say you’re still among the 75% of Americans who didn’t volunteer last year.

I get it. You’re busy.

Lunch Pals, a partnership between Raymond James and Pinellas County Schools, requires only 30 minutes of your time each week, but it can have a life-changing impact on students’ social skills, focus and attitude.

The program has matched 545 kids with mentors from over 43 local organizations, but there are 5,000 at-risk students who could benefit from an additional caring adult in their lives.
