SMDRA & Brothers Redevelopment Paint-A-Thon
Join us this summer for the Brothers Redevelopment Paint-A-Thon, an event that has become one of the state’s largest volunteer events serving seniors. Created in 1978, the Paint-A-Thon is a free service for elderly or disabled homeowners who need their homes painted, but cannot afford a commercial paint job.
Volunteer teams are essential to the event’s success. Our valuable volunteers donate their time and energy to paint the homes of these deserving seniors. You can help continue the tradition by recruiting a team of 10-25 people (from your office, church, civic group, family, or neighborhood) and sign up to paint a home on any day from March through September.
On every Paint-A-Thon project, Brothers Redevelopment staff ensures homeowners meet age and income guidelines, screen the property for need and size of project, work with homeowners to determine their color choices, carry out all EPA regulations that pertain to lead-based paint. Brothers’ staff also will promote the project to local media outlets. After the project is complete, Brothers staff will inspect the house and pick up any unused supplies.
Volunteers arrive and participate on an exterior painting project. The volunteer team leader takes ownership of the project in cooperation with Brothers Redevelopment staff. Brothers’ staff are First Aid, CPR, and EPA Certified and will provide all painting tools, supplies, and materials including paint, ladders, rollers, brushes, and caulk, as well as direct the team’s work for the day.
- We are seeking 35-45 volunteers (minimum 10)
- 8 hour commitment required (if we reached at least 35 volunteers, 4 hour shifts may be options)
- Our task will be to paint a senior(s) home, maybe more than one home based on our crew numbers
- Clean-up after we are done
- Publicize our team’s efforts at every opportunity possible!
