A blind World War II veteran’s home was painted over the weekend by firefighters in Florida who decided to give back to the community in a special way.
William Velez, 89, and his wife were full of gratitude after dozens of members of the Hillsborough County Fire Rescue and their families painted their house on Saturday as part of an event coordinated with Paint Your Heart Out Tampa, a volunteer effort.
The article goes on to state the following:
Volunteer Ken Forward told Fox station WTVT that it’s natural for firefighters to give back to the community.
“To assist the community, to serve the community, and that’s what we’re doing today,” Forward said, adding that Velez noted “he’s not able to get around and maintain his home the way he’d like.”
