Metro Paint-A-Thon

About Paint-A-Thon

Each year, on the first weekend in August, Metro Paint-A-Thon rallies volunteer teams from corporations, congregations, and civic groups to paint the homes of seniors and people with disabilities.

The program helps homeowners remain living independently in their own homes and improves neighborhoods throughout the Twin Cities seven-county metropolitan area.  Since 1984, Metro Paint-A-Thon volunteers have painted more than 6,000 homes.
