The Lazydays “Dream Team” of volunteers was joined by police officers and roofing contractor Michael Martin, owner of Curtis Martin Roofing, who donated professional labor and expertise to the roofing job. Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor stopped by to thank the volunteers for helping out in the community.
