Volunteers Paint Their Hearts Out Tomorrow

paintcanThe Paint Your Heart Out Shreveport’’ program will celebrate its 20th anniversary Saturday, May 19th, as volunteers take to neighborhoods across the City to paint or perform minor repairs on nearly 40 homes.

This is one of the City’s signature events and hundreds of volunteers donate their time each year to paint the homes of low-to-moderate income elderly and/or disabled citizens. Qualified homeowners receive a fresh coat of paint to their homes, along with smoke alarms, deadbolt locks and other cosmetic services.

This is one of the most important Saturdays of the year for many of our senior citizens as well as the volunteers who provide this valuable service,’’ Mayor Cedric Glover said. While the work itself is important, the interaction between the volunteers and residents is even more valuable and can lead to relationships that last long after this day has come and gone.’’

Mayor Glover and his staff will be among those distributing supplies to the 36 teams, beginning at 7 a.m. Saturday at 2400 Levy Street. The Mayor also will visit various sites throughout the day, chatting with residents and volunteers. He is expected to begin that tour at 10 a.m. at 270 E. Ratliff St.

The day wraps up with a party for the volunteers at Festival Plaza from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.
