UPDATED! Paint Your
Heart Out Tampa!

On Saturday, April 21st we once again supported this wonderful community outreach.  We painted the home of an elderly person in need in Tampa, FL.  Our association has been participating in this great event for more than 20 years.  We take great pride in this event by doing other things that provide curb appeal, but are also low maintenance for the homeowner.
