Happy National Painting Week!
For the past 7 years, paint company Sherwin-Williams has celebrated a week of the transformational power of color. It is "a week dedicated to refreshing the places we live in, and a time when we can all pick up our brushes and give our community spaces a little touch-up." With over 4,000 stores in North America, the company has donated more than 33,000 gallons of paint and 122,000 volunteer hours.
Ellen Moreau, senior vice president of marketing communications at Sherwin-Williams said: "Our employees and partners are passionate about lending a helping hand in their communities. Many of the organizations we partner with during National Painting Week haven't been painted in years. We love their enthusiastic reaction when they see how a new color palette and a fresh coat of paint can totally transform their space."
The company has partnered with the Boys & Girls Club of America and Canada, Ronald McDonald House Charities and Rebuilding together. As many of the community space receiving renovated color are for children, Sherwin-Williams created three kid's palettes around the arts, exploration, and pop culture.
Sherwin-Williams also partnered with creatives Mary Elizabeth, Inspired by Charm, Thistlewood Farms, Vintage Revivals, and Room for Tuesday.
By creating and celebrating National Painting Week, Sherwin-Williams can highlight its commitment to the community with creative strokes.
