Operation Hillsborough Homeless with the Tampa 1st Service Platoon
On Sunday, November 11th the Tampa Platoons brought together volunteers to transform the home of disabled Air Force veteran Gary Westmoreland in partnership with Habitat for Humanity Hillsborough County.
Thirteen veterans came together to remove 2 dump trailers of yard debris and damaged fencing, built a new 270ft fence, paint the entire exterior of the home, and landscape the front and backyard of the property.
This project was part of Habitat for Humanity Hillsborough County’s Veterans Build Initiative to support 8 veterans from November 5-12, 2018 with home renovations or new construction.
The Veterans Build Initiative is led by Fellow Alumna and current SLC member, Nitza Rivera. You can read Nitza’s full story here.
