Tampa, Fla. – University Area CDC (Community Development Corporation) is seeking projects and volunteers for its annual Paint the Town event, Saturday, Jan. 16 from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Paint the Town, an event held in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., will bring together community residents as they roll up their sleeves and invest sweat equity into cleaning and beautifying neighborhoods in the Uptown/University Area, concentrating on the zip code areas of 33612 and 33613.
Besides painting, projects may include mowing yards, laying sod, landscaping, planting flowers, repairing fences, cleaning up litter, repairing doors and windows, and more.
