University Area CDC sets Tampa ‘Paint the Town’ event for January 16
The University Area CDC, with help from hundreds of Tampa’s good citizens, will paint the town on Saturday, Jan. 16 from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Paint the Town will bring together community residents to roll up their sleeves and invest some sweat equity into cleaning and beautifying the University area neighborhoods.
Many seniors, single moms, veterans and disabled residents throughout the University area have difficulty maintaining their homes due to physical and financial constraints. Volunteers participating in this Paint the Town event will paint and/or repair houses for select residents, revitalizing the neighborhood in which they live.
The University Area CDC is partnering with businesses, government agencies, religious groups, student organizations and service clubs who will roll up their sleeves to make a difference. Besides painting, projects may include mowing yards, laying sod, landscaping, planting flowers, repairing fences, cleaning up litter, repairing doors and windows, etc.
Paint the Town impacts the entire community by restoring neighborhood pride, increasing property values, and bringing community members together to improve the University Area.
