To celebrate National Painting Week, Sherwin-Williams employees have demonstrated their commitment to communities by donating nearly 90,000 hours of their time to refresh more than 1,000 community spaces since 2012. This year, Sherwin-Williams is partnering with the local affiliates of the Boys & Girls Clubs of America and Canada, Ronald McDonald House Charities and Rebuilding Together, in addition to other deserving community organizations. Professional painting contractors and builders from across North America will also participate with teams from their local Sherwin-Williams stores.

“A fresh coat of paint and a new color palette can completely transform a space,” said Ellen Moreau, senior vice president of marketing communications at Sherwin-Williams. “We’re proud of our thousands of store employees and National Painting Week partners who are committed to giving back, so that we can continue to support the communities where we live and do business.”

To help showcase the transformative nature of paint, and to help all DIYers embrace their personal color style, Sherwin-Williams is teaming up with TV personality and home remodeling enthusiast, Joelle “JoJo” Fletcher. In addition to participating in a National Painting Week community painting project in her hometown, Fletcher has created four trend-forward color palettes to help DIYers more confidently select colors.

“Painting is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to transform any space,” Fletcher said. “I’m excited to partner with Sherwin-Williams to help bring more color to deserving nonprofit organizations.”

For DIYers looking to transform their home, Fletcher created the following four personalized Sherwin-Williams palettes:

“I love creating color palettes and helping homeowners make confident color selections,” said Fletcher. “Whatever the project, I’ve always found it helpful to start with a favorite color, and then accent with neutrals.”

Four DIY bloggers are also joining this year’s National Painting Week activities: Mr. Kate, Wit & Delight, Thistlewood Farms and Vintage Revivals are transforming places in their communities with a fresh coat of paint. More information on these projects, as well as the hundreds of others taking place during National Painting Week, is available at
