Woodburn company hopes to 'Paint It Forward'
A Woodburn residential painting business is celebrating its seven-year anniversary by doing a paint services giveaway for charity.
JB Coloringbrush Painting LLC announced its Paint It Forward event, through which the company will donate $4,000 worth of painting services (including labor and materials, and a donation of paint from Sherwin Williams in Woodburn) to a worthy recipient.
Nominations are now being accepted for deserving families or nonprofit organizations in need of services.
Javier and Blanca Gutierrez started the company in April 2011.
"We know that in life there are hardships which prevent people from being able to afford painting services that they need," Blanca Gutierrez said in a press release. "We want to help!"
Candidates could be someone struggling due to illness or financial burdens, or a nonprofit struggling to make ends meet while helping others.
The winner will be announced April 11.
Note: The original story incorrectly stated the donation of paint was $4,000. It has been corrected to now say the total donation of labor, materials and paint is $4,000. We apologize for the error.
