Bringing people together to brighten neighborhoods.
Metro Paint-A-Thon is a program of the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches that helps income eligible seniors and disabled adults live independently in their own homes longer. Each summer, particularly the first weekend in August, teams of volunteers paint home exteriors in Hennepin and Ramsey counties and neighboring cities for those who are not able to do the maintenance themselves and cannot afford to hire a contractor. This service, offered at no cost to the homeowner, restores not only the homes we paint but also the homeowner’s sense of pride in their property and community.
