To celebrate the donation of over 1 million gallons of paint to Habitat for Humanity International, Valspar created a two-storey home made of Valspar paint cans at an event in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Valspar has donated cash and paint cans to Habitat for Humanity since 1979. The company developed a close relationship with the organization and created A Brush with Kindness, a program transforming neighborhoods through the revitalization of the home exterior.

“Our corporate theme is ‘if it matters, we’re on it.’ Through our wonderful relationship with Habitat for Humanity International, we continue to learn just how much affordable housing matters, and it is our great pleasure to help address this important need,” said William Mansfield, Valspar chairman and CEO in a statement. “We are also very proud that A Brush with Kindness, a pilot effort that started right here in the Twin Cities, is now a national program.”

“One million gallons of paint is an important milestone, but what we’re really celebrating is how our partnership with Habitat for Humanity has allowed Valspar the unique opportunity to transform neighborhoods, by putting fresh coats of paint on homes,” said Gary Hendrickson, Valspar president and COO in a statement.

“As we seek to build strong communities, we find that together new construction, rehabs, repairs and even a coat of paint on some houses can improve neighborhoods,” said Mark Crozet, senior vice president of resource development for Habitat for Humanity International in a statement. “Valspar is a great partner in helping us touch all the houses in neighborhoods where we are focusing on revitalization. We are very grateful for their support.”
Valspar became a national partner of Habitat in 2002.
