Last year’s Habitat for Humanity’s MLK Day of Service set out to paint as many homes as possible on Walton Street South in Midtown. Even homeowners got in on the hard work. Eloise Jones was on the list to have her home painted and decided to help out so volunteers could get through sooner and move on to another home.

ST. PETERSBURG — Volunteers with Habitat for Humanity Pinellas will work to transform the exterior of five area homes for their MLK Day of Service project.
Habitat’s Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative will paint the exterior of the homes using the $5,000 Day of Service grant the organization received for paint and supplies. Habitat volunteers will work in the Community Redevelopment Area (CRA) in south St. Petersburg and paint the home of local residents, making an impact on their lives and improving the community.
