After a long day of painting, painting, and more painting, Benchmark Painting & Carpentry (along with nine other local paint contractors) finished up the last of the home painting project with Habitat for Humanity South Palm Beach County. If you remember reading prior to this post, we took part in the 2013 Paint-A-Thon. And, it was certainly a paint-a-thon.
In over five hours on Oct. 12, 10 homes on 10th Avenue received a new home painting job. 10 families have new exterior paintingon their home, thanks to the stellar participants. It was quite a day.
The 2013 Paint-A-Thon and Block Party is something my painters and experienced staff will never forget. Not only was Benchmark named the “Painting Contractor of the Year,” Doris Jackson and her family (who we painted for) won big – really big. After receiving the most votes based on the home’s finished appearance, the Jacksons received a free painting job and a free cruise for four; we are so ecstatic for this deserving family.
In addition to the Jacksons winning the cruise, we at Benchmark Painting & Carpentry received 25 gallons of Valspar Paint. However, nothing can come close to the joy we feel in being so helpful to the Jacksons!
With quality exterior painting and a great organization like Habitat for Humanity, the Paint-A-Thon was a huge success. As we rinsed out our paintbrushes and supplies at the end of the day, we felt so grateful to be a part of helping bring community pride to Boynton Beach, FL, and specifically, 10th Avenue.
