We believe that giving back to the community is not only a key part of our business - but an essential one. Which is why each year we partner with as many charities as possible to be recipients of our #pappasgivesback campaign. Through this program we are able to provide low or no cost painting to organizations that are doing some incredible work in our community. Through the coordinated and dedicated efforts of our painters, supplies and administrative staff, we are happy to give back to the community that has sustained us from the very beginning.
Below are just a few of the organizations we have partnered with through the #pappasgivesback campaign.
Girls Inc of Metro Denver - August 2018
We were approached by GIMD to repaint 2 of their classroom areas prior to the start of the fall school year. After walking through the space and learning more about what they were needing, we know this was a fantastic opportunity to give something back to this organization that does so much for young girls in our community. We could write about all the amazing things they do, but we really feel they describe their mission the best:
"In partnership with schools, community organizations and at our center in West Colfax, we focus on the development of the whole girl. She learns to value herself, take risks, and discover and develop her inherent strengths. The combination of long-lasting mentoring relationships, a pro-girl environment, and research-based programming equips girls to navigate gender, economic, and social barriers, and grow up healthy, educated, and independent. Informed by girls and their families, we also advocate for legislation and policies to increase opportunities and rights for all girls."
With a mission like that - who wouldn't want to be a part of what they're doing?! Hats off to you Girls Inc - we're supporting you 100% on what you're doing!
The Conflict Center - July 2018
The Conflict Center provides a valuable resource to the community by providing classes and instruction in - simply put...working through and preventing conflict. Their mission is to “prevent physical, verbal, and emotional violence by partnering with individuals and communities to shift perceptions, attitudes, and behaviors through education and skill-building..” In an age where it feels like conflict is lurking around every corner - or dinner table - we are very grateful for the resources they provide and as such, we were happy to provide some of our resources to them in the form of a facelift for the outside of their building.
It's amazing what a new coat of paint will do to refresh and brighten a space. We donated a portion of the exterior repaint of the building and trim to help take that project and part of its expense off their plate so they could redirect those funds in to furthering their work.
The S.A.M.E. Cafe - November 2017
We came across the SAME Cafe through a friend and as soon as we heard about their mission we knew we needed to be involved. It's amazing how often we take for granted the simple blessing of having enough food to eat and knowing where our next meal is coming from. So All May Eat - SAME.... what a great name. Two of our VP's have a background in this area and know how important a good meal is to improving one's health and outlook on life - Tony's background as a chef and Jen's background volunteering in Romania as a teen. So, this project struck a cord for both of them personally.
The SAME Cafe's mission is simple - "SAME Café is a donation-based, fair exchange restaurant that serves healthy food to everyone, regardless of ability to pay. Our mission is to create community through healthy food access. We believe in healthy food, community, and dignity for everyone." They provide an incredible service to our community, and we were honored to take a small project off their plate.
Through the combined efforts of PPR and Sherwin-Williams, we were able to repaint a the ceiling and ductwork in their dining area without impacting their meal service and with very minimal costs to them. Our painters were happy to work the after-hours shift needed to complete the project and our friends at Sherwin-Williams donated all of the paint that was needed.
