Paint It Forward was created in 2005 by Josh Abramson, owner of ALLBRiGHT Painting. The mission was simple: to give painting services and supplies to local families and nonprofits who could not afford them. Each year the company takes nominations through their website and chooses one to receive a special painting project. Since then, it's been annual event for the ALLBRiGHT Painting team and community.
Not long after the inaugural Paint It Forward, Abramson started receiving questions from other contractors who wanted to do something similar in their own community. As the master marketer and systems creator that he is, he detailed step-by-step resources to help other contractors adopt and make the most out of the program.
This year the program grows even bigger as PCA announced that they are partnering with ALLBRiGHT Painting to make it easier for painting businesses to get involved with community service.
Between now and September 15, you have the opportunity to register and help a homeowner, organization or nonprofit of your choice. PCA’s industry partners, including major manufacturers, will also be part of the Paint-It-Forward movement by offering supplies at no cost to participating member companies. Additionally, PCA will be working with local and national media to spotlight events throughout the country.
In October, the APC team will put down our pens and pickup a paintbrush with the PCA Board of Directors to help a local organization out here in Denver and to support Paint It Forward.
