While the Lancaster Painting team is well versed in catering to customers’ needs year-round, there is one special client each year that the company especially looks forward to: the Paint it Forward winner.

The Lancaster Painting Paint it Forward event is a nomination-based program which allows community members to submit people or organizations that they think would benefit from a complimentary paint job. In an effort to beautify the community and help those in need, for the past five years Lancaster Painting has donated thousands of dollars in services to give back to those who are often either down on their luck financially or health-wise.

“I know there are a lot of people in need of an uplift or a facelift to their home or business,” said Jennifer Beede of Lancaster Painting. “Everyone’s needs are different so the client can choose whatever they would like to make it unique to them.”

Lancaster Painting will accept nominations, which are kept confidential, until Dec. 5 when the management team will select the top three proposals. Each year at the company Christmas party employees vote for their favorite project of the three which they will collectively work on in either January or February of the following year.

“I do believe it's something that our crew looks forward to every year. It’s kind of hard to explain the feeling we get out there, but it really makes us all feel good,” said Beede.

This year marks the fifth annual Paint it Forward event and individuals can submit nominations by filling out the online form at Nominations can also be emailed to or mailed to 228 N. Center Street, Turlock, CA 95380.
