Paint Tacoma-Pierce Beautiful needs paint crews

Paint Tacoma-Pierce Beautiful needs paint crews now! Here’s your chance to help low-income homeowners in need. Paint Tacoma-Pierce Beautiful is still looking for groups to form volunteer crews to paint houses in Tacoma and in Lakewood. Church groups, civic and service organizations, families and businesses are all groups that can form paint crews. No experience is necessary. They provide paint and basic supplies, and the advice of a skilled painter to guide crews through the job. Register your crew today, and become a reason for hope this summer! Visit to register. Crew leaders can attend orientation by appointment, or on Wednesday, July 17, 6-7:30 p.m., at 901 S. 13th St., Tacoma, 98405.
Since 1985, Paint Tacoma-Pierce Beautiful has painted more than 2,000 houses for low-income, elderly and disabled homeowners during the summer months. Homeowners pay nothing because we supply the paint and volunteers provide the labor. Each house painted is a chance to transform neighborhoods and lives. Paint Tacoma-Pierce Beautiful is a program of Associated Ministries, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that unites people of faith to build stronger communities. Since its founding in 1883, Associated Ministries has become a web of interfaith, congregational and community partnerships working for the common good of the people of Pierce County. Today, we fulfill our mission through more than 25 programs and services. For more information about Associated Ministries, please visit
