We are happy to welcome another nonprofit partner to Venice MainStreet! Sharing Talents And Resources Together (START) was formed in May 2019 by six individuals who saw an opportunity to improve the lives of people in their community by helping local-based nonprofit organizations. Recent projects have included helping Venice Christmas Angels, VABI Urban Forest, Laurel Civic Association, All Faiths Food Bank, and Venice Area Pregnancy Care Center among others.

START offers volunteer opportunities through its outreach and fundraising activities and social events for its members. The organization thrives on teamwork and camaraderie. If you don’t mind a bit of work and like to have a good time doing it, START is the organization for you! For more information, visit startofsc.org and follow START on Facebook.
