To qualify, homes must be owned and occupied by people with limited financial resources and the owners must be at least 60 years of age or have a permanent disability that hinders them from doing the work themselves. Once a home is determined eligible, volunteer teams are matched to do the scraping, priming and painting of the house. The Community Paint-A-Thon covers ten townships including Barrington, Elk Grove, Hanover, Maine, New Trier, Niles, Northfield, Palatine, Schaumburg and Wheeling.

If you or someone you know could benefit from the community-wide project, please contact Catholic Charities at 847-253-5500.
