Josh Abramson believes in the power of giving back. His "Paint-It-Forward" event not only helps his community, it’s good PR for his company, A. Allbright Painting Inc.
For the firm’s seventh annual Paint-It-Forward event, about 20 A. Allbright employees donated time and labor to update the Santa Clarita Valley Food Pantry.
“The day was spent prepping the exterior building by moving necessary items, masking doors and windows, spraying the building, painting the trim and metal roll-up doors, cleaning up, and overall enjoying each other’s company,” Abramson says. His local Sherwin-Williams store helped out by donating Duration® and A-100® paint to the project.
“To top it all off, the store manager Lance brought a barbecue and cooked up a mean hot dog and hamburger extravaganza,” he adds. “Working with people with this kind of dedication makes a project like this so rewarding.”
Serving those in need since 1986 with a mostly volunteer staff, the SCV Food Pantry distributes more than a million pounds of food a year, more than half to children and seniors.
“We are thankful that Santa Clarita has companies like A. Allbright who want to help us give back to the community,” says Belinda Crawford, executive director at the food pantry. “Our clients now have a more welcoming environment to visit.”
