Every year a group of folks like yourself volunteer for Paint-A-Thon, having painted over 6,000 homes since 1984. The aim of the program is to help low-income seniors and people with permanent physical disabilities live independently in their own homes longer. By generously donating their time and talents, the teams benefit not only homeowners, but the neighborhood and the community as well.
It happens each summer, beginning in late July and continuing into early August. This year teams of volunteers, including those from PMI’s Minnesota chapter in the Twin Cities metro area, scrape, prep and paint home exteriors for those who are not able to perform or afford the maintenance themselves. This service, offered at no cost to the homeowner, restores not only the homes we paint, but also the homeowner’s sense of pride in their property and community.
Paint-A-Thon teams and team members come from diverse areas and backgrounds: congregations, companies (employees and retirees), service and professional organizations, community groups and families.
