Free Exterior House Painting for Seniors in Need

Allowing seniors to remain living independently in their own homes, with dignity and pride, is an on-going outcome of the Paint-A-Thon program. Each August, thousands of volunteers scrape, prime and paint the homes of low-income seniors and people with disabilities - at no cost to the homeowner.

The effort brings stability and beauty to neighborhoods in more than 45 cities throughout the 7 county metro area. This year, volunteers from corporations, congregations, civic groups, and schools will paint more than 100 homes the weekend of August 6-7.

To qualify for Paint-A-Thon, homeowners must:

  • own and occupy a single-family home, in need of pain, but not in need of major repairs,
  • live in Anoka, Carver, Dakota, Hennepin, Ramsey, Scott or Washington County,
  • be 60 years of age or older, or have a permanent physical disability (if under 60),
  • meet monthly income guidelines.
If you have a neighbor, friend, or family member who could benefit from the program, or if you are an eligible homeowner, call the Paint-A-Thon office at 612.276.1579 for further information or to request an application. You can also visit us at paintathon.gmcc.org to download an application.

The deadline to apply is May 6, 2011.

Submitted by Paint-A-Thon organization.

Hey! I will be looking forward to visit your page again and for your other posts as well. Thank you for sharing your thoughts about residential painters in your area. I am glad to stop by your site and know more about residential painters. Keep it up! This is a good read.
Modern delay removal tape prevents damaging the taped surface. "Delicate" tape has about 40% the adhesion of traditional tape, and can remain on a surface for up to 30-days without creating damage.
Interior painting is also the most cost effective and quickest home improvement project. The advantage of having your house done by a professional is the experience, skill and expertise needed to make the interior of your home look amazing. You can transform the look of a room with just a quick color change. The key is knowing which interior paint colors are right for your home and in which color combinations will work best. Instead of choosing safe and conventional colors, let us help you choose the right color combinations for your home's architectural design. Whether you are looking to bring a warm and cozy feel to a room, or a dazzling burst of color, we will help bring your ideas to life. We also offer color consultations, faux finishes and murals.

This is awesome, as seniors who will be able to meet such criteria will greatly benefit from this program. Hopefully this becomes a permanent national policy.
