PPG said it provided roughly $20,000 – including more than 460L (121 g) of Héra® Prémium waterborne interior paint and Trinát® Aqua waterborne enamel paint – for the COLORFUL COMMUNITIES™ project at Corvin Mátyás.
Volunteers painted more than 21,500-square-feet of walls and ceilings in four classrooms and four changing rooms, said Mark Silvy, PPG’s director of Corporate Communications.
“Kecskemét is an important site for PPG, and we were pleased to work with the community to create a brighter and more inviting learning environment for the primary school’s [around 700] students and teachers,” said Antonio Puzio, PPG product manager, OPTIMA EMEA, and regional account manager, Daimler C. Europe.
According to Silvy, the Colorful Communities program is PPG’s signature initiative for community engagement efforts, with the aim to protect and beautify the neighborhoods where PPG operates around the world.
The plan is to complete about 75 more projects this year after completing almost 60 in 2015-16, Silvy said.
