One of Nolan Painting’s customers who works at the Make-A-Wish Foundation Blue Bell chapter reached out to us to see if we could donate our painting services to children dreaming of a bedroom or basement makeover. Because of the pandemic, the organization was unable to create travel experiences that children find so popular. Instead, Make-A-Wish got creative and worked with families on organizing home makeovers. They put together a coalition of local contractors to become Wish Heroes, making these home makeovers come true.
As a Wish Hero, we pledged to donate up to $5,000 of our painting services to local children and families over the course of one year. The projects took place in Kennett Square where we prepped and repainted a basement/multipurpose space for studying and play, and in Huntington Valley where we prepped and repainted a child’s bedroom.
WHO IT BENEFITS:
Make-A-Wish Foundation creates life-changing wishes for children with critical illnesses. When a wish comes true, it creates strength, hope and transformation in a child and a community.
WHEN & WHERE:
February – December 2022 in Kennett Square and Huntingdon Valley
When Make-A-Wish reached out to us for help, we had just wrapped up our annual Reindeer Romp 5k fundraiser in December, in which we raised over $30k for the American Cancer Society—so we knew it was the right thing to do. Donating our painting services to supporting families with critically ill children aligns with our company’s values. We support the neighborhoods where we live and work. We are so pleased that our services in helping create a room makeover can make an ill child happy.
“My son has a wish granted by Make-A-Wish Foundation for a room makeover. Nolan Painting came to paint his room. Mahmadou showed up on time and was very professional and diligent about his work. He was also very nice and friendly. The room looks so luxurious and my son is very excited about it! Thank you Mahmadou and Nolan Painting for such an excellent job! It shows that you take great pride in your work.” —Casey Hayes
