Once again this year, Rob Silver, owner of Dynamic Painting USA, and the Osprey Observer have teamed together to offer a Mother’s Day Painting From the Heart campaign. The campaign, intended to give an exterior home paint job to a single mom in the community, has been a huge success and Silver plans to continue the effort this upcoming Mother’s Day by once again giving away an exterior home paint job.
“I am a small business owner,” said Silver. “But, if I can give back and make a huge impact for a local family and a local mom for Mother’s Day, I am happy to do it.”
Silver’s commitment to serving others began when he was a child, tagging along with his mom as she volunteered in the community.
One of the past recipients of a free exterior paint job is Pam Ramoska. Ramoska, a single mom with two teenage boys, lost her husband from a tragic heart attack and was finding it hard to keep up with the exterior of her home.
Past Painting from the Heart recipients include, Brandon single mom Sharon Cooley, who adopted a son and two young siblings, The Ellis family of Riverview, whose father, Jason, is a wounded Iraq war veteran with five children and most recently, Lithia single mom Daniella Vetencourt whose oldest son has special needs.
“I am so thrilled with the way the house came out,” said Ramoska, “I don’t have to be embarrassed about how it looks anymore. Painting From the Heart is the perfect name for your campaign, for your crew were all so wonderful and worked so hard.”
Silver is also pleased with the partnership with the Osprey Observer and the impact of the campaign and says that he is able to do it once again this year.
“We believe in giving back to the community,” said Silver. “And there is no better feeling than seeing an entire family light up with the opportunity to pick a new house color.”
To enter or nominate a single mom, email firstname.lastname@example.org with a letter regarding the family and a photo of the exterior of the house by Thursday, April 30 or contact Silver at Dynamic Painting at 689-9333 or visit www.dynamicpaintingusa.com.
