The project brought together more than 15 PPG volunteers, who spent a day putting the finishing touches on a major renovation of the gymnasium’s sports hall. PPG provided around $11,000 to assist with the project, as well as approximately 200 liters (53 gallons) of JOHNSTONE’S paint products.
Part of the city’s public education system, Gymnasium #3 provides elementary education to nearly 520 students ages 6 to 11. The sports hall’s renovation included plastering walls, varnishing Swedish ladders, painting the interior, and replacing the floor, windows, doors and heating system. The PPG volunteers assisted by painting the Swedish ladders and marking the floor for football and basketball. The selected color palette of yellow, blue, orange and white helped create a bright space.
“The sports hall was not repaired for many years and even not used during the last school year due to its poor condition,” said Michael Shukov, PPG GM, Russia. “PPG is very pleased that we could assist with the revitalization of this important community asset so the children can now enjoy their sports lessons in a colorful and safe space.”
