Westerville, OH (PRWEB) April 08, 2014
Almost everyone knows someone who’s facing a life-threatening medical condition. Fresh Coat of Westerville and Dublin co-owners Tony Butler and Steven Gloyer are no exception. So when their local Make-A-Wish® office reached out to Fresh Coat for a corporate office painting project, there was no question about what Gloyer and Butler would say.
“Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana was looking for a quote to paint their entire Columbus, Ohio, office, instead of providing them with a fair quote; we surprised them by offering to paint the entire office at cost. In addition, we were able to get our paint supplier, Sherwin Williams to happily donate all of the paint for the job. Since then we’ve donated our services to paint a little girl’s room as part of a room makeover wish and we have another room makeover coming up very soon,” Gloyer said. “When we’re able to make donations like these, it saves the organization money so that they can make more children’s wishes come true and that’s what it is all about.”
Fresh Coat offers professional residential and commercial painting services including interior and exterior painting, wood staining and refinishing, wallpaper removal and many other services for nearly every protective coating application. They use quality, environmentally safe materials and offer a live 24/7 customer service center, online scheduling and free detailed quotes. Fresh Coat Painters of Westerville and Dublin serves most of the Greater Columbus area.
“We are proud to be involved with such a great organization like Make-A-Wish. Granting children’s wishes is a wonderful cause and something we are very happy to be a part of. Sometimes something as simple as a fresh coat of paint can help bring so much needed cheer,” Gloyer added.
Make-A-Wish grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. According to a 2011 U.S. study of wish impact, most health professionals surveyed believe a wish come true can have positive impacts on the health of children.
Emily Denholm, the Marketing Communications Coordinator for Make-A-Wish Ohio, Kentucky & Indiana, said having companies like Fresh Coat willing to get involved in the organization’s mission truly makes all the difference.
“We are a local organization and we grant wishes here in this community. We rely on the support our local partners and companies to help us make those wishes come true. We are truly grateful for the support of Fresh Coat Painters,” she said.
Butler said that while he’s humbled people recognize the importance of donations like the services Fresh Coat has been able to provide, it’s really about helping kids and families in their community.
“Steve and I both believe that you do the right thing because it’s the right thing. This is one of those situations. When Make-A-Wish called us, we saw a perfect opportunity to make a difference – a chance to make these lives a little brighter,” Butler said. “The room makeovers are for wishes, but the chapter corporate office painting is important too.”
"Fresh Coat Painters as a national company understands the importance of giving back to the communities we serve and we're always excited when our owners take it upon themselves to donate their services and when our great partner Sherwin Williams can provide the paint. We'd also like to thank Make-A-Wish for coming to Fresh Coat for that first quote and for allowing our Columbus locations to get involved with the local chapter," Fresh Coat Painters’ Director of Operations Greg Platz said.
