Paint Your Heart Out

 

TEAM Punta Gorda volunteers collaborate with organizations such as Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity, Peace River Community Housing Partners (PORCH), Punta Gorda Housing Authority, Punta Gorda Rotary and other groups to paint their hearts out wherever needed. 

Started in 2014,  PYHO was designed to help elderly, disabled, and needy residents while beautifying Punta Gorda. PYHO does more than paint homes.  It sends a message of pride and builds a sense of community spirit and unity that lasts long after this day of service is over.

BAYFRONT GETS A FRESH LOOK – April 16, 2022

Volunteers from TEAM Punta Gorda, the Punta Gorda Rotary, Isles Yacht Club Women in Action, and the Charlotte High School Naval ROTC Reserve came together to paint the Bayfront Center on Retta Esplanade in Punta Gorda. While the day was a warm one, that didn’t deter the hardworking crew who got the job done before noon. Tom Cavanaugh, a Director on TEAM’S board, was instrumental in providing accessibility to the building all day long which was Indispensable. TEAM Paint Your Heart Out Co-Chairs Barry Simescu and Bob Bechtold oversaw the work. Click on thumbnails below to see full slide show.

THEY PAINTED THEIR HEARTS OUT IN 2019

The day began with an early rain shower, but the more than 100 volunteers waited it out and headed out to their respective houses at 8:30.  The rain stopped in time for all painters to enjoy themselves and complete the seven houses by 2:00 pm.

We had volunteers from the Punta Gorda Rotary Club, Suncoast Credit Union, Isles YC women pickle ballers, Emerald Pointe, many Charlotte High students and of course, members of TEAM Punta Gorda as well as staff and volunteers from PYHO partner, Charlotte County Habitat for Humanity.

Paint Your Heart Out 2019 was made possible by generous contributions from the Punta Gorda Rotary Club, Suncoast Credit Union, Landsburg Bennett, the Wooster Brush Company and the Charlotte Community Foundation.  Also by cash contributions through the PYHO “Go Fund Me” page, Peace River Distributors, Joshua Citrus, Deep Creek Community Church for the use of their facilities and Dunkin’ Donuts.  Thank you all!
