Fresh Paint Days


Home Depot Logo

Fresh Paint Days Pennsylvania is a program designed to provide community groups with paint and painting supplies enabling them to renew a community structure in need into something beautiful through the application of fresh paint and a lot of elbow grease. This annual event is held in September with applications due in mid July. During this month-long period, grant awardees along with their volunteers will receive exterior paint and painting supplies.
