Bellevue and Dayton, KY have been selected by Give Back Cincinnati for the 17th annual Paint the Town on Saturday, June 10, 2017. This will be the second time homeowners in Dayton and Bellevue will be part of Paint the Town. The Paint the Town last took place here in 2011.
Paint the Town is a one-day event during which volunteers from local companies will paint approximately 40 homes in a single day in Dayton and Bellevue, at no cost to the homeowners. Thanks to corporate sponsors that provide funding and nearly 1,200 volunteers who provide labor.
WHY PAINT HOUSES?
Our community is a sum of its total, and our housing is a big part of that equation. Our houses are our homes, a place that we share memories and grow in community with our neighbors. Houses require a tremendous amount of upkeep and things like painting a house can be an overwhelming financial cost for many members of our community. Painting a home can give a renewed sense of pride to the homeowner, improve the image of the neighborhood and serve as a catalyst for community improvement.
While preference is given to homeowners who are physically or financially unable to paint their homes themselves, all applications will be considered.
HOW TO APPLY
Homeowner applications will be accepted until February 21, 2017. Homeowners can apply online at http://apply.paintthetowncincinnati.org.
