Navy personnel rolled up their sleeves and pitched in to help worthy causes in the Tampa Bay area on Wednesday.
Projects they worked on included a yard beautification project at the Ronald McDonald House in St. Petersburg; volunteer efforts at Metropolitan Ministries in tampa, helping serve homeless men, women and children; and helping Habitat for Humanity with pressure washing and landscaping several houses.
The activities are part of this week's Tampa Bay Navy outreach, where Navy personnel from U.S. Central Command, Navy Operational Support Center Tampa and Navy Recruiting District Miami are presenting to civic groups, and visiting different community service organizations, sharing the message about why it's important to have a strong Navy.
