On Saturday March 5, the Samuel Dixon Family Health Center received a complete interior and exterior paint makeover as the recipients of Allbright Painting’s 11th annual “Paint It Forward” charity event.
The Samuel Dixon Family Health Center is a full-service non-profit that provides affordable and accessible primary care services to all residents of the Santa Clarita Valley and other underserved areas, with a special emphasis on serving the uninsured and underinsured.
The health center was nominated for the “Paint It Forward” charity giveaway as the facility’s interior and exterior paint was peeling, cracked, and faded. After being alerted that they were in consideration for the giveaway, CDFHC’s CEO Philip Solomon sent over pictures of the facility that highlighted the dilapidated condition of the building’s paint.
Allbright’s team of painters and volunteers beautified and restored the interior and exterior of the health center with a fresh coat of paint. All paint was donated by Benjamin Moore Paints.
“I had the opportunity to witness over 40 volunteers and employees from Allbright come together and perform their magic by truly transforming our center and giving it their Allbright touch. Not only did they repaint the interior, but they repainted the exterior of both buildings, giving it a well-deserved make-over. All of us at Samuel Dixon Family Health Centers couldn’t have been more pleased to see this transformation and we are excited to share it with our patients and our community. ” – Philip Solomon, CEO of CDFSC
The “Paint It Forward” movement was started by Allbright Painting’s Chief Solutionist Josh Abramson, in 2005.
Since completing the first “Paint It Forward” 11 years ago, and now with other painting contractors joining the movement, their combined efforts have reached a goal of over $1,000,000 worth of free painting services and materials delivered to communities across the U.S. and Canada. Past “Paint It Forward” recipients include The Children’s Hunger Fund, SCV Food Pantry, Village Tree Preschool, Crossroads Community Church, and more.
“Paint It Forward” is one of our favorite programs because it brings us all together for a common cause. It’s the only time we as a company work together on one project at the same time (and some team members bring other family members too). We all have a great time serving those in our community who need painting services but that can’t afford them. You see, it’s not all about the painting, it’s about the opportunity we get every day to make someone happy. It was truly our pleasure to be able to serve an organization that does so much for our community.” – Josh Abramson, Chief Solutionist at Allbright Painting
