The Lincoln Paint-a-Thon brings together volunteers to paint the exterior of homes owned by low-income individuals. The program is designed for homeowners who cannot afford to hire to have the work done and do not have the physical ability to do it themselves.

  • There is no charge to the homeowner.

  • A committee selects the recipients from the pool of applications based on the greatest need, the condition of the house and the availability of donation funds and volunteers.

  • Recipients can choose from pre-selected paint colors.

  • All applications must be received by June 1.

  • Selected homeowners will be notified by July 15, 2020.

  • The painting will be done by August 15, 2020.
