At PNP Craftsmen, we are committed to making the world a more beautiful place. Usually, we do that by painting homes and businesses for our clients in New York and New Jersey. This year, however, we began a new tradition that will bring new beauty into the lives of those who couldn’t normally afford it. The charity painting project, called “Paint it Forward”, was inspired by A. Allbright Painting in California.
This year’s recipient was Esperanza House, a temporary residence and treatment facility for homeless men with substance abuse problems. This excellent program, located on 107th Street in the heart of the Bronx, provides training and counseling in a wide variety of practical and social skills, and helps connect them to the education and work that will change their lives.
PNP Craftsmen partnered with some community volunteers to stain the deck of the Esperanza house. The deck was very plain and dirty looking when we arrived, but we cleaned and stained it a beautiful red, adding life and brightness to the exterior environment. Now residents enjoying the outdoors have a rejuvenated space to inhabit, as they seek to rejuvenate their lives!
We want to thank our painters and volunteers who came out to make this event a fun and productive day. Also, we extend our gratitude to Sherwin-Williams Paint, who donated the materials for the event. As we look forward to another charity painting project next year, we welcome your input and suggestions for deserving recipients.
PNP Craftsmen provides interior and exterior painting services in the Bronx, Queens, Manhattan and the rest of New York City.
