Paint Your
Heart Out Tampa!

On Saturday, April 22, 2017 we once again supported this great charitable event.  We had 25 volunteers who helped paint the home of an elderly person in need in Tampa, FL.  Our association has participated in this great event for over 20 years painting the exterior of a needful homeowner.

Special thanks to those who came out to help that day...you really made a difference in Mabel's life.
