Paint The Town
NeighborWorks Sacramento held it’s 30th Annual Paint the Town Neighborhood improvement Event on September 27 and 28, 2019!
NeighborWorks Sacramento’s Paint the Town has completed more than 400 projects over the last 30 years!
NeighborWorks Sacramento’s Paint the Town model supports our community stabilization initiative. Through this initiative NeighborWorks Sacramento renovates formerly vacant homes for resale to a new family. Each year, NeighborWorks Sacramento chooses a street in low to moderate income neighborhood for our Paint the Town event. We focus our efforts on one specific block in order to maximize our impact. NeighborWorks Sacramento meets with residents to develop work-plans for home improvement projects to meet each resident’s needs. Volunteer teams are assigned one or more projects to complete. NeighborWorks Sacramento provides the supplies, equipment and expertise needed to lead the projects.
NeighborWorks Sacramento has many wonderful sponsors and volunteer teams from such organizations as Wells Fargo, South Sacramento Rotary, Sacramento State’s Community Engagement Center, McGeorge School of Law, Holt of California and many others. City Council members and County Supervisors also provide financial and in-kind resources. Paint the Town is a fantastic opportunity for you and/or your organization to participate in a high-impact, community-driven, team building event!
We need you! How you can help
We have flexible sponsorship opportunities to match your needs as a sponsor. Each resident will have one or several projects that can include exterior paint or touch-ups, landscaping projects such as planting trees, mowing, edging, pruning, or building planter boxes, minor repair of a fence or porch, or other projects that collectively make a significant, positive impact on the entire block. Participate by contributing a financial contribution, a volunteer team or both! Ideal sponsor teams will have 10 to 25 volunteers.
Volunteer teams worked with residents in the Del Paso Heights neighborhood to complete several improvement projects including: painting homes, landscaping yards and other home and yard improvements.
If you are an individual wanting to get involved, we would love to have you! We can add you to a team to work on one of the many projects. To learn about volunteer or sponsorship opportunities, contact us at (916) 452-5356.
