Our 1st Community Project-”Fun in the Sun” at The Spring!
Our first community project was a huge success! High Hopes in High Heels went to The Spring of Tampa (www.thesping.org) on July 25, 2009 to have a “Fun in the Sun” day with the residents. The mothers and children were able to relax and have a great time outside in the beautiful, Florida weather.
For the children, we had water balloons, kickball, face painting, corn hole, sidewalk chalk, and hopscotch. They loved the face painting and actually wound up wanting to paint the volunteers! So, many of us left with colorful limbs, but it was worth it to see the warm smiles on the children’s faces!! The original plan was to have a water balloon toss, however this shortly turned into a water fight with sounds of laughter and squeals of cheer as the children ran around refreshed in the warm sun.
Thanks to the donations from our members we also were able to provide snacks, candy, and the hit of the day, frozen ice pops! The mothers were happy playing cards and listening to the sounds of their little ones having fun without a care in the world!
Members in Attendance: Rachel Coleman, Jessica Grimsley, Christie Armungs
