Apply for the 36th Annual Community Paint-a-thon by July 1 at the Township of Schaumburg. Paint-a-thon is a free program wherein volunteers paint homes.

To qualify, homes must be owned and occupied by the following who are unable to paint their homes themselves:

  • Older Adults aged 60+
  • People with Disabilities aged 18-59
  • Veterans aged 18+

There are income and asset limits, but all are encouraged to apply. Interested applicants should contact Frances Borja at 847-285-4541 for more information or an application. Once a home is determined as eligible, volunteer teams are matched to scrape, prime and paint the outside of your home. All work occurs in September 2023. Current homeowners insurance is required.

Anyone interested in volunteering for Paint-a-thon should contact HandsOn Suburban Chicago at 847-228-1320.
