Habitat for Humanity received a new cargo trailer to expand its “A Brush with Kindness” program.
“A Brush with Kindness” is Habitat’s exterior home preservation program that revitalizes low-income homes and neighborhoods.
“The program is a three-way partnership between Habitat, Valspar Paint and the homeowner,” explained Habitat’s Steve Pepenella, who oversees the program. “If the homeowner is physically able, they prepare their home to be painted. Then Habitat staff and volunteers join the homeowner in painting the home ,using paint that is donated by Valspar.”
The 6-by-12 enclosed cargo trailer was donated to Habitat by Northern Tool. SignMasters, of Tyler, donated the graphic design wrapping of the trailer.
“We are grateful to Northern Tool for donating the new trailer. This will help us increase our impact across Smith County,” said Jack Wilson, Habitat’s CEO. “And we are indebted to SignMasters for donating the wrapping of the trailer. We are fortunate to have the support of such great businesses in the community.”
The trailer will transport to and from the job sites the numerous ladders, paint and painting supplies required for a painting project.
