JOHN TODIA SWING
Beautiful swing was donated by A2K in the memory of John Todia. It is a beautiful and peaceful place to visit in the Narrows.
“Sometimes all it takes is one project to be the catalyst for change within an entire community,” says A2K President Julie Hoofnagle. “A2K’s goal is to keep this momentum going.”
Did you know that our major streetscaping project in front of CVS became an inspiration and a catalyst for their neighbor, Crabby Bill’s, to enhance their landscaping and entrance? “I know it’s spreading citywide, and we’re happy to be part of the change,” says Paul Jenkins, Jr. of Crabby’s.
Jim Mayes (Jim Mayes, Broker/ Founder of The Biltmore Group International Real Estate) directly across the street from CVS notes, "Kudos to Action 2000 for the tremendous job performed to the entrance of CVS on Gulf Blvd, they created an environmentally attractive entrance from different directions that is also functional with walking paths, plants, shell and sod."
IRB City officials are also taking notice. In a recent interview with IRB City Manager, Gregg Mims, he shared that in his 30 years of experience, this is the first City where a group like A2K with A2K volunteers would hold events and raise money and then ask the City, “what can we do and what can work on together to make the city better.” He further explained, “there is no other community in Pinellas County that has this situation.”
