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.
