Time to brush up, Winnipeg!
It’s the time of year when Take Pride Winnipeg! puts the call out for applicants of homes needing some sprucing up, including a fresh layer of paint.
Homeowners who meet certain criteria are encouraged to apply and may be interviewed to ensure they qualify. If selected, they will pick out paint colours with the paint team leader, and then a volunteer team will come to their house with all the supplies they need. An exterior paint job is completely in as little as one day.
The cost of the painting is covered by sponsors and targets Winnipeg homeowners aged 65 and older, or those with a permanent disability and low income.
The deadline for applications online and by phone at (204) 956-7590 is May 16, 2014.
