The Power of Paint

Sherwin-Williams Celebrates the Power of Paint

Transforming More Than 200 Community Spaces as Part of National Painting Week

Long time client, Sherwin-Williams has once again celebrated the power of paint by refreshing more than 200 community spaces across the country as part of its seventh annual National Painting Week, held May 25-June 4. The company donated paint and supplies, and thousands of local employees volunteered their time and expertise to transform community centers, schools, historic landmarks and more.

Since 2012, Sherwin-Williams employees have demonstrated their commitment to communities by donating nearly 90,000 hours of their time to refresh more than 1,000 community spaces in celebration of National Painting Week.

This year, Sherwin-Williams partnered with the local affiliates of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Canada, Ronald McDonald House Charities and Rebuilding Together, in addition to other deserving community organizations.

“A fresh coat of paint and a new color palette can completely transform a space,” said Ellen Moreau, Senior Vice President of Marketing Communications at Sherwin-Williams. “We’re proud of our thousands of store employees and National Painting Week partners who are committed to giving back, so that we can continue to support the communities where we live and do business.”

Three Hispanic DIY bloggers also joined this year’s National Painting Week activities with special projects: Casa Linda, The Latina Next Door and Pearmama. More information on these projects, as well as the hundreds of others taking place during National Painting Week, is available at

On Wednesday, May 30, more than 45 employees from Sherwin-Williams gave a Charlotte Family Housing (CFH) shelter a makeover painting the whole interior of the house. Charlotte Family Housing (CFH) is a shelter-to-housing program for families experiencing homelessness in the Charlotte community.
