Cleveland, Ohio –Providence House, Ohio’s first and one of the nation’s longest operating crisis nurseries, has been selected as the award recipient of Nuebert Painting’s 2nd Annual Charity Paint Giveaway. Neubert Painting, in partnership with Sherwin-Williams Company, founded the Charity Paint Giveaway in an effort to provide paint services and support to individuals or organizations who are unable to afford the paint and labor on their own.
Sherwin-Williams is generously donating the paint and supplies; Nuebert Painting will cease its business operations to provide the manpower to paint Leo’s House, which shelters infants up to 2 years of age on the Providence House campus.
"We truly could not have picked a more deserving organization - or a more interesting project! This house will be a challenge for us but we are all really excited about it,” said John Neubert, Owner of Neubert Painting. “We’re happy to get involved with such a worthy cause. Now they’ll have an even more beautiful house to shelter at-risk infants and children.” Providence House was selected from 10 other nominations for this Charity Paint Giveaway.
A group of over 70 volunteers, including both professional painters from Neubert Painting and staff from SherwinWilliams, will be onsite Tuesday, August 4th to paint Leo’s House. Their goal? Finish the entire house in just one day! Einstein Brothers Bagels and Chipotle Mexican Grill will generously support the project by providing muchneeded food and beverages for the volunteers and staff that day.
“We are truly honored to have been chosen as the recipient of the Neubert Painting Charity Paint Giveaway. We could not be more grateful to Neubert Painting and Sherwin-Williams for their ongoing support of our mission,” said Natalie Leek-Nelson, CEO and President of Providence House. “We’ve got 26 little people to feed, shelter and clothe and given the current state of the economy, it is highly unlikely that we would have been able to afford this paint project ourselves.”
