Nolan Painting donated its time and talent to prep, patch and paint 1,200 square feet of space in the Center’s cafeteria. In addition, Nolan helped guide 20 volunteers from the community who also offered their time. In all, Nolan Painting donated four days of work (a value of $5,000) and collaborated with Sherwin Williams who agreed to donate all the paint – a $700 value. The Center for Creative Works project is part of Nolan in the Neighborhood, a community initiative supporting local organizations and events throughout the Main Line area.

January 19, 2015 (Martin Luther King Day) Wynnewood, PA
The Center’s mission is to give people a sense of belonging and purpose. There’s a spirit of volunteerism centered on MLK day and to take advantage of that spirit, we decided to donate our services to this wonderful organization and to help generate creativity for these budding artists. The amazing people at The Center for Creative Works are doing important and noble work for our community. Nolan employees loved the opportunity to help brighten the surroundings of the Center.
