Old Paint Drive and Fundraiser May 8 – 9-2:30 pm

Isn’t it a nuisance and potential fire hazard?  Share it with the World and also help us build an Atlanta area Habitat for Humanity House for a deserving family. Drop off your old paint, with your cash donation of (hopefully) about $5.00 per  gallon, at the Faith Lutheran Church Old Paint Drive and Fundraiser. 
 
When:  Saturday, May 8th  from 9:00am to 2:30pm
Where:  Faith Lutheran Church’s parking lot, 2111 Lower Roswell Rd.Marietta, GA 30068
Please come by and volunteer an hour or two if you would like!
 
Faith has partnered with Habitat for Humanity as one of 10 Lutheran churches of the Lutheran Coalition for Habitat for Humanity, founded in 1993, which provides simple decent housing for lower income families, and just completed building its 32nd home.  Past years the Coalition’s primary fundraiser has been the “Taste of Habitat” gala where chefs from member churches donate their time and talents to cook and serve incredible food to gala attendees.  Last fall it raised over $30,000.  But because of Covid, there will be no in-person “Taste” this year and this Old Paint Drive will hopefully help partially fill -in and raise important financial contributions.  
 
For the Faith’s Old Paint Drive, the Coalition and Faith are partnering with Global Paint for Charity, whose founder, Rony Delgarde, said “In developed nations the world over, garages and basements are hiding treasure troves of unused house paint. Until now, recycling or disposing of that paint was a challenge and too often pollutes the environment. We are dedicated to bringing beautiful color to under-served countries that have little or no access to paint otherwise.  At Global Paint, we believe that everyone in the world, no matter their circumstances, deserves to live in a beautiful and colorful environment. Increasing access to paint in underserved communities could improve the local economic power for millions of vulnerable families and uplift the spirit of the less fortunate individuals for many years to come.
