DCCU Cares! Join Our Paint-a-thon Volunteer Team

Volunteer with your favorite Madison credit union
Join DCCU Cares’ Patin-a-Thon team

Do you want to make a difference by helping someone in our community? Please consider volunteering for this year’s Paint-a-thon with your favorite Madison area credit union. Over the past 28 years, thousands of volunteers have worked together to paint more than 500 houses for low-to-moderate income residents in Dane County. Paint-a-thon recipients are area seniors, veterans, people with disabilities or health issues, and families with young children who live in Dane County and own their homes.

July 30, 2016

DCCU is once again a program sponsor for this event and we’re proud to help make an important impact on our community and local citizens’ lives. We are also organizing a team of volunteers and need your help. The event will take place on Saturday, July 30th from 8 am – 3 pm.

Why get involved?

Personally, I’ve been involved with Paint-a-thon and Project Home for 11 years. I enjoy offering my time and energy to this organization because the help we provide stays local, we have immediate feedback, and I get a sense of satisfaction knowing the impact we make will be long lasting.

How can I help?

If you volunteer, expect it to be hot since it will be, after all, July in Wisconsin. If you know how to paint, you’ll be able to start right away. If you’re new to this, we’ll help you learn how to do a quality job. You’ll be given a Paint-a-thon t-shirt. Be sure to wear clothes and shoes that you’re okay possibly getting dirty or a little paint on. It is really not too bad; however you won’t want to wear a new pair of shoes that day.

Prep work – pre-painting scraping

We’ll be involved in cleaning the exterior, preparing the surfaces for painting, painting the home, cleaning up after the painting is done and sharing lunch with the team. We’ll have pizza or subs depending on which vendor donates.
