Paint the Town is a daylong event that engages more than 1,000 volunteers to rejuvenate homes in need of a little TLC. Painting a mass of homes in a concentrated area can truly serve as a catalyst to lift up a community. Neighborhoods are chosen according to need, and qualified homeowners are encouraged to apply for the service. Community groups are instrumental in spreading the word about Paint the Town. Volunteers work in teams led by experienced team leaders to paint a house. If needed, houses are prepped for painting prior to the day of the event. Volunteers are provided with breakfast, lunch, drinking water, a team T-shirt, and painting supplies. Volunteer sign-ups will take place in spring.
Paint the Town has painted more than 350 houses in the communities of College Hill, East End, Price Hill (twice), Northside, Madisonville, Hartwell/Carthage, Cheviot, Avondale and Evanston in Ohio, and Covington, Bellevue and Dayton in Kentucky… and we’re just getting started.
