For the past several years, Paint Brush Corporation has donated paint brushes to the Paint-A-Thon, which HandsOn describes as “a unique community partnership designed to paint the exterior of homes owned and occupied by persons with limited financial resources, who are at least 60 years of age or have a permanent disability making them unable to do the work themselves.” This year’s Paint-A-Thon is scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 10, and covers 10 townships in the suburban Chicago area.
If you live in the Chicago area and want to participate, you can find out how on the HandsOn website.
Update: Chicago-area painting contractors if you've volunteered for Paint-A-Thon let us know -- send us an email, and we will send you a free paint brush to use. That's our way of thanking you for donating your time and skills. (No seconds, we make only one grade . . . the very best.)
