Hillsborough County Bar volunteers
THE HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY BAR Leadership Institute members and their families beautified the landscaping at Tampa’s Alpha House, a shelter for homeless pregnant women. They spent the morning digging up weeds and roots, planting 177 grasses and bushes, fertilizing, and mulching five flower beds at the Bonnie Center, one of several buildings in Alpha House’s “Alpha Village.” The Leadership Institute members donated not only several hours of their time, but also over $400 to purchase supplies, including cypress mulch, potting soil, and weed barrier to make it a low-maintenance landscape.
