National Painting Week



National Painting Week officially lasts from May 19th-29th this year. During this time, professional painters can give back to their communities by helping Sherwin Williams with their selected projects for the year. Sherwin Williams also enlists bloggers, design, and color experts for the epic painting projects during these 11 days.

Last Year

Last year, Sherwin Williams donated paint, time, and labor to 275 community projects to help revitalize classrooms and neighborhoods, along with local painters. It took 7,000 gallons of paint and supplies; 24,500 hours; and more than 3,700 volunteers to complete this work. That’s a lot of paint!

History

Sherwin Williams has been doing this for the past five years, celebrating “the power of color to transform rooms, homes, and entire communities.“ They have more than 4,000 stores which participate across the country. They also honor this week in Canada (from May 12th-28th). If you go in during these days you will receive 30% off paints and stains!

This Year

This year, Sherwin Williams is partnering with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Boys & Girls Clubs of Canada, Rebuilding Together, Ronald McDonald House Charities, and Pottery Barn. The Boys & Girls Clubs help Sherwin Williams complete projects that beautify places where youngsters go to learn. Rebuilding Together joins with Sherwin Williams to revamp houses in lower-income areas to improve safety and health for those within the community. Ronald McDonald House Charities will aide in making over spaces dedicated to keeping families with sick children close to each other with the appropriate care and resources. And finally, Pottery Barn, Pottery Barn Kids, and Pottery Barn Teen are contributing decor and furniture to some projects.

How to Help

You can help, too, by donating a digital color from a website, photo, or browsing experience to assist Sherwin WIlliams in bringing color to communities in need. You can visit here for more information: www.donateyourcolor.com.
