Jags in the Street: Paint the Town

Paint the Town:
A simple idea: we are a group of people who like to paint houses and there are a bunch of our neighbors who need their houses painted.

Paint the Town or PTT is an enormously successful program from Cincinnati that is in it's inaugurual year here in Indianapolis. The idea is that painting houses on a particular block will help improve the appearance and serve as a great way to bring the neighborhood together.
We have identified homeowners that are in need of a fresh coat of paint and for a number of reasons have been unable to complete the project on their own. PTT will provide volunteers, supplies, and expertise to homeowners in order to repaint their home's exterior.

Come join IUPUI on Saturday, October 2, 2010 to help turn a house into a lovely home in the Bates-Hendricks Neighborhood in Indianapolis.

There are 2 shifts available: 8 am - 12pm and 1pm - 5 pm.

Spots are limited, so join us now in getting some paint on your clothes and revitalizing a part of your community!
