Painting It Forward

Every year Lancaster Painting has a Paint It Forward contest where community members are able to nominate a person or organization who is in need of a paint job.  The prize is worth $5,000 in paint and services and the winner is voted on by the Lancaster crew at the Turlock business’ annual Christmas party. The winner of this year's contest was a member of Jessica's House and had recently had the exterior of her home painted and decided to donate the prize to the grief support center instead.

"We love giving back. This is our 8th annual give back and we love helping everywhere in the community.  It's even more special to us that it's a place that serves the community.  We're giving back, but Jessica's House also provides a service for people in need too for free for the community," said Jennifer Gonzalez of Lancaster Painting.
