What is Paint-It-Forward?

Paint-It-Forward is a charity program that was founded ten years ago by Joshua Ambrason in Los Angeles California. It helps families and nonprofits in need of a paint job that for some unfortunate reason cannot afford it. Since completing the first painting job ten years ago many painting contractors across the US and Canada have taken Paint-It-Forward to their communities and have reached a goal of over $1,000,000 worth of free painting services and materials. Sunwest Painting has joined the movement; we know that there are hundreds of families and non-profits in desperate need of a paint job and we want to help! We are giving away a $3,500 paint job to a deserving family or nonprofit org in our community. We are excited to transform, beautify, and give back to our community by giving away this paint job.
