BEHR for Fresh Pain Days Pennsylvania
Behr was awarded a Gold Shovel Award for their partnership with Keep Pennsylvania Beautiful’s Fresh Paint Days Pennsylvania Program. Designed to provide community groups with paint and painting supplies, this program enables groups to renew a community structure in need into something beautiful through the application of fresh paint and a lot of elbow grease. This year’s event was held in partnership and with support from BEHR and The Home Depot. During the month of September, eight grant winners transformed their structure utilizing up to 20 gallons of exterior paints and $75.00 in painting supplies.
