Richmond Charity Painting Project

We are proud members of the Painting and Decorating Contractors of America (PDCA). I’ve been heavily involved in our local chapter for years and my dad held leadership positions at both the local and regional level for over 30 years. I was honored to have been selected to participate on a panel at the PDCA’s national convention in 2015. I’ve included some more information about the PDCA below.

This is a long way of saying that we are fans of this well-respected organization and are eager to participate in our local chapter’s annual charitable paint project for a non profit agency. We collaborate with other members, contractors and suppliers. Participants donate their supplies, time and talent to this event.

This year United Methodist Family Services was chosen as the recipient. UMFS is a nonprofit agency that provides a comprehensive array of programs to meet the needs of high-risk children and parents to enable them to overcome challenging circumstances and succeed. Their mission is to be an unwavering champion for high risk – children and families and collaborating with communities to help them reach their full potential. Take a look at the video below for a peek at what we did!

Approximately 50 volunteers arrived bright and early on a Saturday morning. From H.J. Holtz & Son alone, we had over half of our company participate, to paint the common areas, family room, foyer, kitchen, and halls of four cottages. We also hung a mural in the administrative office. It was a satisfying day knowing we were refreshing the cottages for the residents. Giving back to our community is invaluable and we are so happy we have the resources to participate in this annual project.
