A fresh coat of paint brightens any room, and this summer LP Quinn Elementary School will refresh its learning environment with 30 gallons of donated paint.
Tupper Lake Central School District was selected as the winner of a paint grant through Fortune’s Hardware’s partnership with True Value Foundation’s Painting a Brighter Future program. A True Value Foundation paint grant helps improve a school’s learning environment and can have an impact on student attitudes and academic performance. Over 1,600 schools across the country have been awarded paint since the program’s inception in 2009, covering nearly 17 million square feet of learning space.
Partnering with True Value Foundation, Fortune’s Hardware nominated Tupper Lake CSD for a 30 gallon paint grant to help refresh its learning spaces. Maurice Fortune of Fortune’s Hardware delivered the asthma- and allergy-friendly paint to the school Friday.
True Value’s EasyCare Ultra Premium Acrylic Latex paint has earned the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Mark via an independent certification program established in the United States, which helps consumers identify products more suitable for people with asthma and allergies. The program performs physical and chemical testing on products to ensure they minimize irritants and pollutants in the air and reduce potential exposure to allergens. The asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Mark is awarded only to products that are scientifically proven to reduce potential exposure to asthma and allergy triggers.
LP Quinn Elementary School is using the paint to give its cafeteria a much-needed makeover. The students next fall will enjoy grabbing their meals in the newly painted facility.
