21st Annual Paint-A-Thon
Back for it’s 21st year, the Annual Paint-A-Thon.
Each year 14 houses in the Burlington/West Burlington area, and 1 in Mediapolis get painted by community volunteer groups. Community Action of Southeast Iowa will evaluate the applications. Sharron Ford is with Community Action and says there are certain requirements in order to be eligible..
“They must be 55 years of age or older or have a disabling condition. The home must be a one or one and a half story building. In selecting the homes, we use the Federal Poverty Income Guidelines of 200% of poverty. We also take into consideration other circumstances like health problems and medical bills”.
The deadline for application is July 19th. You can mail them to Jim O’Neill at Two Rivers Bank & Trust. The event is also sponsored by Diamond Vogel, who donates all the paint and supplies.
