Lending a Hand
Sherwin-Williams joined Comcast and The Today Show as partners of Highlands Business Partnership and Hope for Highlands. On Saturday the organizations joined forces to promote volunteerism by working in downtown Highlands to help restore the area ravaged by Hurricane Sandy.
The event opened the Today’s Show with hundreds of volunteers from Sherwin-Williams, Comcast, the New Jersey Firefighters Mutual Benevolent Association and residents from the area.
Volunteers spent the day doing everything from painting, installing sheet rock, to cleaning streets and beaches. As thanks for their help, participants received discount cards from Sherwin-Williams, Raymour and Flanigan, and Love Inc. Food was provided by local restaurants and Boardwalk Sausage and the Henry Hudson High School Marching Band played during the opening ceremonies.
In addition to donating manpower, Sherwin-Williams provided more than 250 gallons of paint and primer to makeover several Highlands buildings and local residences.
"We are proud to partner with such a terrific group of volunteers, representing so many organizations, to help Highlands residents rebuild their homes, businesses and community," said Mark Sposito, vice president, marketing, Sherwin-Williams Eastern Division. "With 200 gallons of premium paint and primer, we hope to add a little protection, brightness and color back to the Highlands community."
