BRUSH UP Winnipeg is about to begin. It’s a house painting program , run by Take Pride Winnipeg ,where homes based on financial or physical restraints of a home owner , are selected. It’s painting the homes of neighbours in need , helping to beautify the whole community. Homeowners and their neighbours appreciate the difference; some homeowners even brought to tears at the metamorphosis !
Corporate Volunteers put on the duds and pick up a brush during large scale paint days in June and September. One home owner last year is quoted as saying…”words cannot express how deeply touched I am, to have my house look so fabulous.” Unquote. To date over a 100 Homes have been ” Brushed-Up”.
