This year we will be partnering with Academy Prep Center of St. Petersburg to bring a very special Christmas to young students in our community.
We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Academy Prep Center of St. Petersburg for this year’s Nolestice Holiday Give-Back! Academy Prep Center is a nationally accredited nonprofit middle school that empowers students qualifying for need-based scholarships to become future community leaders through a rigorous academic program coupled with ongoing graduate support. The families are all low-income families and live right here in St Petersburg. We are working with the school and their board to grant the wishes of some students who would otherwise not have gifts this holiday season.
We are asking our fellow alumni, family and friends to pitch in this year by helping the Pinellas ‘Noles to fulfill these children’s holiday wish lists. It is very important that you follow these instructions and guidelines when donating, to ensure that each child is taken care of this Holiday Season.
We are asking that all gift donations be made via the following Amazon Wish Lists. Academy Prep Center has made this incredibly easy for our members to donate by creating a list for each student.
Please read the following information before purchasing:
- There is no limit or minimum on donations. You may “adopt a child” to fulfill their entire wish list OR select any item to fulfill part of their list.
- Once a gift has been purchased, it will be removed from the wish list to avoid any duplicates.
- All gifts will be sent directly to the school for ease of distribution to the families. The school will be wrapping and ensuring the families receive their gifts before the holiday break. You must select the Academy Prep address at check out, in order for gifts to be sent to the school. (If you accidentally send them to yourself, please bring them (unwrapped) to Nolestice on December 15th.)
- ALL ORDERS MUST BE MADE BY FRIDAY, DECEMBER 7th. This allows plenty of time for shipping during the holiday rush PLUS it allows time for the school to fulfill any remaining items from the list to ensure all students are taken care of in time for the holidays.

Gift Giving FAQ:
Q: I would like to adopt a child to donate their holiday, but I don’t want to purchase it online. Can I do that?
A: Ideally, all purchases are made online because logistically, that is the most efficient for the club and Academy Prep Center. If you would prefer to purchase items offline, PLEASE EMAIL US and let us know so that we may remove the child’s items from the wish list to avoid duplicates. You will need to bring your items (unwrapped) to Nolestice on December 15th.
Q: I was told I would receive a drink ticket, raffle ticket and t-shirt if I donated a gift or school supply, but I ordered my items online and they were sent directly to the school. How do I receive my complimentary items?
A: When you check in, you can either show us your confirmation of purchase on your phone or feel free to print the confirmation and bring it with you.
Q: Do I have to buy everything on the child’s list or can I purchase part of their wish list?
A: You do NOT need to purchase everything from a child’s list to participate. We accept any contribution you are able to give. You may purchase the entire list, one item, several items or even an item or two for different children. It’s completely up to you!
For questions, please EMAIL the Pinellas ‘Noles!
