Sherwin-Williams Joins HomeAid America in Effort to End Homelessness


Gold Level National Partnership will support Homeless Housing Development Program

Sherwin-Williams, a national leader in the paints and coatings industry, will join HomeAid as a Gold Level National Partner. Dedicated to enhancing the communities where it operates, Sherwin-Williams will contribute $50,000 to assist HomeAid in the fight against homelessness across the country.

HomeAid identifies charities working to help homeless families and individuals that are in need of additional or upgraded facilities in which to house people. HomeAid’s builder captains and their trade partners and suppliers take on these projects, completing them at a deep discount through the in-kind donation of their time and materials, while the service providers offer programmatic resources, such as job and life skills training, financial counseling, and physical and emotional support needed to get back on their feet.

“HomeAid is exactly the type of organization that Sherwin-Williams is proud to stand behind,” said John Morikis, Chairman, President and CEO of The Sherwin-Williams Company. “Their mission to connect homeless families and individuals with safe and accessible housing aligns with our Company’s values and philanthropic priorities.” Michael Robidoux, Vice President – National Accounts of The Sherwin-Williams Company will join HomeAid America’s Board of Directors.

“Sherwin-Williams has been very supportive of HomeAid in recent years, providing paint for many of our chapters’ shelter projects,” said Peter Simons, CEO of HomeAid America. “Now by joining us as a national partner, they will be spreading this support across the country as well as providing more opportunities for local involvement across the nation. We are deeply grateful for this commitment.”

Sherwin-Williams is currently very active with HomeAid’s chapters in Atlanta, Houston and Colorado, generously lending financial and in-kind product support on an on-going basis. Recently, HomeAid Portland also received donated paint and supplies to complete a mural for a shelter serving homeless single-parent families. Later this month, HomeAid Sacramento will participate in Sherwin-Williams’ National Painting Week. On May 30, Sherwin-Williams employees will give back to refresh Sacramento’s project for Volunteers of America’s Mather Campus, showing what a big difference a simple coat of paint can make.
