When a need arises, it is amazing how heroes come out of the woodwork! Two such heroes are Eric & Samuel Woods of Payson Paint & Supply. They recently discontinued carrying Valspar paint brand, and donated their entire overstock of inventory to the Payson Area Habitat for Humanity ReStore. “This donation couldn't have come at a better time”, says Cindy Kofile, ReStore Manager, “We have just kicked off our A Brush with Kindness Level 1 Program which helps low-income homeowners who struggle to maintain the exterior of their homes, allowing them to reclaim their homes with pride and dignity, and this donation will go a long way to improving the lives of so many here in Rim Country”.
ABWK Level 1 includes: Exterior scraping, caulking and minor painting; window repair (new screen, glass); minor siding and trim repair; caulking/foaming cracks and gaps; cleaning gutters; minor soffit or fascia replacement; board replacement in porch, stair or ramp; door & window hardware repair or replacement; adding or replacing door seals; landscaping (small tree pruning and trimming, weeding, reseeding); insulating pipes and duct work (outside, not under home); wrapping water heaters; cleanup, brush & tree fire wise, minor junk removal and weather stripping.
- Habitat for Humanity’s A Brush with Kindness serves low-income homeowners who are selected based on: need (with income below 60% of area median income), ability to pay, and willingness to partner with us in the project.
- Payments made by the partner family are placed in a revolving fund so that Payson Area Habitat for Humanity’s A Brush with Kindness program can serve others in need.
- Habitat for Humanity’s A Brush with Kindness uses volunteers, donated materials, and an affordable payment schedule to make repairs on homes, helping low-income homeowners continue to live independently and securely in their homes.
Applications can be picked up at the administrative offices of PAHH inside the ReStore at 103 E. Highway 260 Mon-Fri 10am-5pm. Cindy Kofile, Program Manager can be reached at (928) 474-0330.
