Sharper Impressions Painting presented a check and over 50 gallons of new, environmentally friendly paint, totaling $2000, to the United Way of New Orleans. The United Way, a non-profit organization, works to deliver programs and services that target community needs and provide building blocks for the Katrina rebuilding effort.
Employees spent nearly a full week in the city and were given a guided tour of areas devastated by the hurricane. “We chose to do this now, so many years after Katrina, because we feel that many people may have forgotten that it takes a long time to rebuild after such devastation.” Hurricane Katrina was one of the United States’ most destructive natural disasters, and Sharper Impressions Painting wanted to show their continued support for the New Orleans community.
Sharper Impressions Painting named New Orleans as the site for their annual “Paint the Brain” conference. “Ever since Hurricane Katrina hit, we’ve all been concerned about the successful rebuilding of New Orleans,” says company founder, Geoff Sharp. “This is just a small way to show our support for local businesses and help out some area families with paint supplies.”
