ABOUT NOLAN IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD
To meet our neighbors and customers, we attend, send volunteers to and sponsor road races, concerts in the park, festivals, silent auctions, shows, and sporting events throughout the Main Line and surrounding areas such as Montgomery County, Delaware County, Philadelphia County, Bucks County, and Chester County. We also support booster ads and directories for local nonprofits.
We travel to events with a trailer loaded with a tent, tables, coolers, a popcorn machine, bins, bags, cups, promotional giveaways, banners, and signs. In 2018, we gave away over 5,000 water bottles and running gloves. We also gave away hundreds of pounds of popcorn and hundreds of gallons of Gatorade and water. Employees are strongly encouraged to participate and volunteers receive comp time toward vacation time.
We also offer free gift certificates for a free Nolan Painting Painter for The Day™ as prizes and awards for silent auctions. When choosing what to support, we consider the causes important to our employees and customers, as well as other worthy causes.
In 2021, we sponsored over 100 community events, donated over 1,000 hours of volunteer service, which equals $30,000 in labor costs, invested over $70,000 towards sponsorships, and helped raise hundreds of thousands of dollars for great causes.
Since 2000, Nolan Painting has been the presenting sponsor of the Reindeer Romp, with Kevin Nolan serving as Race Director. The Reindeer Romp is a 5K race held every December in Havertown in memory of Brandon Lake, a Havertown boy who lost his fight against cancer. Over the years, the Reindeer Romp has raised over $400,000 for the American Cancer Society.
Kevin Nolan has also served in the past several years as Race Director of the Haverford Twilight Run and the Main Line Run, which he helped annually raise $100,000 for the causes these two races support.
