Painting it Forward: Company offers to paint 20 houses for free
LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – For many struggling to make ends meet during the pandemic, additional projects such as home improvement have been pushed into the background. One local company, however, is “Painting it Forward”.
Blue Ape Painting has stepped up to help those in need. The company, which has been open for about a year, allows people to book painting jobs online.
Richard Ethington of Blue Ape Painting said they had been looking for different ways to give back to the community and committed to painting 20 homes for families nominated by friends or family.
“We are working to identify people who have either shown tremendous courage, such as first responders or key workers, or people who have suffered heartbreak or hardship, had COVID or lost family members, and we are painting their homes for free,” he said.
So far the company has painted two houses and even done some extra things for families.
“It’s great for me. It is an honor to be part of this experience. For Ruby, we were able to showcase their laptops for their sons, who all shared a Chromebook. Everyone loves this painted house. We delivered diapers for Jennifer for a year, ”said Ethington.
If you would like to nominate someone, you can do so on the company’s website. The company wants to surprise the paint jobs for the people selected for a free paint job.
