December 21, 2016, “Your Southside Lawyer,” James Flynn, partnered with the Saint Petersburg Police Department to distribute gift cards to individuals and families around the community. Attorney Flynn and SPPD officers went to various homes and locations, giving away a total of $5,000 to help those in need have a happier holiday.
On January 16, 2017, The Flynn Law Firm, P.A., sponsored the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Day Parade and Family Fun Day in St. Petersburg. This annual parade was revamped this year with a new parade route that allowed it to be the largest parade in the history of the City of St. Petersburg. The “Dream BIG Parade” was followed by a family fun day in Tropicana Field, that included a firm-sponsored concert and family-centered games and activities for the entire community of St. Petersburg, in the spirt of celebrating the legacy and dream of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Attorney Flynn and his staff were all on-hand to celebrate with the community, and look forward to partnering with the City of St. Petersburg in years to come for this annual celebration.
Starting in 2013, an annual event held on the Saturday before Thanksgiving that provides free turkeys to deserving families for the holiday. In the two years since the Annual Southside Festival’s inception, Attorney Flynn has distributed over 1,500 turkeys alongside the Mayor of St. Petersburg and other dignitaries and volunteers. During this event designed specifically for economically disadvantaged families of South St. Petersburg, a community festival is held that includes performances by acclaimed musical artists, a barbecue, and carnival, all at NO cost to every man, woman, and child in attendance. Carnival festivities for the children have included: face painting, pony riding, petting zoo, zip lining, rock wall climbing, bounce houses, assorted rides, and so much more. There is no charge to any of the more than 5,000 individuals in attendance for the concert, food, or carnival, most of who have never had the opportunity to experience such festivities outside of the Annual Southside Fall Festival.
From January 2014 to March 2017, Attorney Flynn provided free transportation services to senior citizens, aged 55 and up. Seniors in need of transportation for medical appointments, grocery shopping, and other important activities received a ride free of charge in one of three efficient, clean, and private vehicles. Transportation was provided to seniors residing in St. Petersburg, Pasadena, Gulfport, and all locations south of Pinellas Park to appointments in locales as far north as Clearwater.
