The project brought together more than 40 PPG volunteers, who spent three days revitalizing a small house that serves as a meeting point for single parents facing difficult life circumstances. PPG provided $27,050 and 53 gallons of SIGMA COATINGS paint products to assist with the project.
“Treffpunkt für Alleinerziehende” helps single parents and their children transition back to their normal lives after a divorce, death or other life situation. The facility is open to all parents and their children, who receive support from trained social workers and have the opportunity to meet others in similar situations. More than 100 people who use the organization’s services each year will benefit from the Colorful Communities project.
Volunteers painted the meeting house’s walls, window frames, doors and playhouse in a color palette of green, yellow and orange. These colors were chosen to create a welcoming, bright and encouraging space.
“PPG is pleased to support the mission of ‘Meeting Point for Single Parents’ to help families in our community,” said Heiko Stuhl, PPG plant manager, Wuppertal. “I am also proud of the dedication, creativity and enthusiasm of our employee volunteers, who made this project a reality. It was an amazing experience from start to finish.”
