College Pro Beautifies a Saskatoon House - For Free

Posted On June 27, 2012

Students to volunteer up to 117 hours to paint a home for free!

We are incredibly excited and proud to have partnered with General Paint to offer a free paint job to one lucky homeowner from the community of Saskatoon.  Our student managers and General Paint are providing up to 117 volunteer hours, providing a value of $5,000 in services, equipment and materials, to revitalize Mr. Weibe’s home on 6th Street East, Saskatoon.

College Pro Painters has helped thousands of college student entrepreneurs realize their dream of becoming small business owners over the years, and we have also been a very strong presence in the communities in which we serve, coming together to donate our time and do something good for communities across North America through a variety of local and national initiatives.  Since 2004 alone, our charity events have provided over $950,000 in services, equipment and materials!  We strongly believe in partnering with like-minded organizations that strive to improve the communities in which they serve, and are excited and proud to be working with General Paint on this particular event in Saskatoon. 

For this particular event, Saskatoon community members were asked to provide a picture of their home to the Saskatoon Express Facebook page in the “Paint my house” album.  The picture that received the most “likes” was selected as the winner for a free exterior painting project on their home!  In this case, Mr. Weibe was the lucky winner, with 660 “likes” for his picture, and prep work will begin on June 25, and will complete on June 28, weather permitting.
