On Saturday, July 22nd members of the ALLBRiGHT Painting Happiness Team and volunteers "Painted-It-Forward" by adding a fresh coat of paint to The Teen Project's treatment center in Sun Valley, CA. The center was nominated and chosen to be the recipient of ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING’s bi-annual Paint-It-Forward paint charity event. ABC7 Eyewitness News was on location filming ALLBRiGHT's painters and volunteers hard at work painting the inside of the center.
Founded in 2007 by Lauri Burns, The Teen Project provides transitional housing and support programs for homeless young women and those aging out of the foster care system. The Teen Project's Freehab provides free drug and addition treatment.
"The amount of painters and volunteers that showed up for the event was amazing, we feel so grateful and so blessed to have them support our organization." - Lauri Burns, Executive Director at The Teen Project
"When we received this nomination, our hearts were compelled to donate our time and services and give back to an organization that does so much for young women who need extra support. We were thrilled to have the opportunity to do our 2nd Paint-It-Forward event of 2017 and will continue to do as many charity events as we can." - Josh Abramson, Chief Solutionist at ALLBRiGHT 1-800-PAINTING
Dunn-Edwards Paints graciously donated 100 gallons of paint that was used to brighen and restore the center.
in 2005, Josh Abramson started the Paint-It-Forward movement so that his company could give back to the local community. Since the first Paint-It-Forward event, and now with other painting contractors joining the movement, combined, they have reached a goal of over $1,000,000 worth of free painting services to deserving families and nonprofit organizations across the U.S. and Canada.
