Webfoot Painting’s $5000 Painting Charity Giveaway (Press Release)

Webfoot Painting to Donate $5,000 Worth of Painting Services to Family or Nonprofit in Need; Requests Recommendations from the Community

Webfoot Painting Co., a leading residential painting company serving Central Oregon, announces its 2nd Annual $5,000 Painting Charity Giveaway. The Bend-based company will select one recipient in the Bend/Redmond area based on need and compelling story to receive $5,000 in free paint, labor and materials.

Last year’s winner, The Ronald McDonald House of Bend, tested the giving spirit of the giveaway and all those involved. The RMDH hadn’t been painted in over 12 years and was in severe condition. “When you come to a building the size of RMDH in the condition that it was in, $5000 worth of painting would really only allow us to put some “lipstick and mascara” on the building,” said Gavin Hepp, partner in Webfoot Painting and organizer of the event. “For this project to be something our employees and volunteers could be proud of, we knew we had to do it right, the Webfoot way.” The team at Webfoot and volunteers from around Central Oregon worked for four days restoring the exterior of the Ronald McDonald House. Sponsors like Sherwin Williams also stepped up in a big way when Webfoot Painting owners, Gavin Hepp and Travis Ulrich, asked if they’d be willing to triple their paint donation. The project ended up taking over 400 labor hours, nearly 100 gallons of paint and primer, and would have cost approximately $20,000 had house manager Mardi Bruce, not submitted their story for consideration.

Webfoot Painting will begin collecting stories of worthy recipients for the 2nd Annual $5000 Painting Charity Giveaway via their website on Monday, January 3rd, 2011. Once again, the entire Webfoot team will be providing their time, talents and resources using paint products donated by Sherwin Williams to freshen up and restore someone’s home. Stories will be collected through the end of February with the winner being determined by a company vote in March. The only criteria is that you have a compelling story of why you feel you or someone else you know and care about, deserves the free painting services.

Webfoot asks the community to provide written stories, pictures and any supporting materials no later than February 28, 2010 via the company’s website submission form (www.webfootpainting.com), email (gavin@webfootpainting.com), or mail (61535 S. Hwy 97 Ste. 9-277, Bend, OR 97702).
