CLEARWATER (FOX 13) - The Paint Your Heart Out Clearwater team celebrated their 26th anniversary by painting a dozen homes on Saturday.
Organizational leaders invited more than 260 volunteers to help them get the job done.
Paint Your Heart Out Clearwater offers free house painting to local seniors who don’t have the means to do it themselves.
“The homeowners are very pleased and blessed to have us come,” says long time board member Madra Franklin.
Clearwater Fire and Rescue personnel put down their houses and picked up paint brushes to volunteer with the organization.
“It just another way for us to give back to the community away from emergency incidents,” said Assistant Chief John Klinefelter.
The Paint Your Heart Out team does a city wide paint project on one day every year to support members of the community, and gives people from all across Clearwater the chance to work together.
Volunteers painted, 40 year Clearwater resident, Jacob Fulton’s home on Saturday.
Fulton is blind, but that didn’t stop him from seeing the overall message of this special one day effort.
“It makes me feel good to know that someone cares,” he said.
