ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING Accepting Final Nominations for 18th Annual Paint-It-Forward
Already grateful to live in Santa Clarita - a community consistently recognized for its altruism and nonprofit support? Here's another big win that will fuel your hometown pride.
Earlier this year, over 110 painting contractors from around the US gathered in Albuquerque, New Mexico to Paint-It-Forward by working together to serve a community in major need. The Gateway Center, a campus that provides medical, behavioral health and vocational services to at-risk individuals received a much-needed facelift thanks to the volunteers.
How'd that amazing act of kindness get started? Santa Clarita's own local painting contractor, ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING.
Paint-It-Forward was once a "little local volunteer giveaway" that started in the SCV - but it has gained traction and become a national movement of generosity and neighborly kindness.
Since its inception and national implementation, millions of dollars worth of painting services and materials have changed the lives of widows, foster children, domestic violence survivors, differently-abled kids and so many more.
And it all started right here, in Santa Clarita, by Josh Abramson of ALLBRiGHT.
Ready to join the cause? It's so simple. All you need to do is think about the people and organizations in your circle that could use some of ALLBRiGHT's signature "painting happiness" - then spend just a few minutes nominating them online. The selected individual or org will receive up to $25,000 in painting services. But don't delay - ALLBRiGHT is taking final nominations and will close submissions soon.
Log on today to take part in this sweet slice of SCV history - and be proud that you're now part of the "painting happiness" movement, too.
