McKeithen's paint donations help Statesboro youth
McKeithen's True Value

A fresh coat of paint brightens any room, and this summer Langston Chapel Middle School, Bulloch Academy, and Boys and Girls Club of Bulloch Co. will refresh their learning environment with 20-30 gallons of donated paint. 

These organizations were selected as the winners of a paint grant through McKeithen’s Hardware 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. Over 1,600 schools across the country have been awarded paint since the program’s inception in 2009, covering nearly 17 million square feet of learning space. 

Partnering with True Value Foundation, McKeithen’s Hardware nominated Lanston Chapel Middle School, Bulloch Academy and Bulloch County Boys and Girls Club for a 30 gallon paint grant to help refresh their learning and activity spaces.  McKeithen’s Hardware is mixing paint now to be delivered in early summer.

 “Through True Value Foundation’s Painting a Brighter Future program, we’re able to help the youth of Bulloch County and give back to the community we love to serve,” said Tom McKeithen, co-owner of McKeithen’s True Value Hardware. “The donation will not only save these organizations money, but more importantly will create an environment that fosters learning, inspires creativity and instills community pride.”
