The 30th Annual Community Paint-A-Thon will be held in September 2017. While the date is a long way off, applications are now available! To qualify, homes must be owned and occupied by people with limited financial resources. The home owner must be at least 60 years of age or have a permanent disability or be a veteran of any age. Once a home is determined eligible, volunteer teams are matched to do the scraping, priming and painting of the house. The Community Paint-A-Thon covers ten townships including Barrington, Elk Grove, Hanover, Maine, New Trier, Niles, Northfield, Palatine, Schaumburg, and Wheeling. Current Homeowners Insurance is also required. For general information or to receive an application for the Paint-A-Thon, call the Senior Center at 847-588-8420. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Annette Sommer at HandsOn Suburban Chicago at email@example.com.
