HAYES TRUE VALUE PAINT DONATION HELPS CALDWELL ELEMENTARY YOUTH ACHIEVE
Caldwell Exempted Village Schools wins True Value Foundation’s Painting a Brighter Future grant! A fresh coat of paint brightens any room, and this summer Caldwell Elementary will refresh its learning environment with 30 gallons of donated paint. Caldwell Elementary was selected as the winner of a paint grant through Hayes True Value’s partnership with True Value Foundation’s Painting a Brighter Future program. A True Value Foundation paint grant helps improve a school’s learning environment and can have an impact on student attitudes and academic performance. Nearly 1,000 schools across the country have been awarded paint since the program’s inception in 2009, covering over 14 million square feet of learning space. Partnering with True Value Foundation, Hayes True Value nominated Caldwell Elementary for a 30 gallon paint grant to help refresh their learning spaces. Tim Hayes of Hayes True Value is delivering the asthma and allergy friendly paint to the school, located at 44350 Fairground Rd. True Value’s EasyCare Ultra Premium Acrylic Latex paint has earned the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Mark via an independent certification program established in the United States, which helps consumers identify products more suitable for people with asthma and allergies. The program performs physical and chemical testing on products to ensure they minimize irritants and pollutants in the air and reduce potential exposure to allergens. The asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Mark is awarded only to products that are scientifically proven to reduce potential exposure to asthma and allergy triggers.
Caldwell Elementary is using the paint to give their cafeteria a much-needed makeover. The more than 650+ students next fall will enjoy eating lunch in the newly painted facility.
“Through True Value Foundation’s Painting a Brighter Future program, we’re able to help Caldwell Elementary and give back to the community we love to serve,” said Tim Hayes, owner of Hayes True Value. “The donation will not only save the school money, but more importantly will create an environment that fosters learning, inspires creativity and instills community pride.”
