Volunteers spruce up Central New Mexico Boys and Girls Club

A little paint and some fun colors can go a long way.  When local kids return to the Boys and Girls Club of Central New Mexico on Monday, they’ll have a nice surprise. 

About 12 volunteers spent their Saturday giving a safe space for kids in the Albuquerque community, a facelift. 

“We’re painting the inside community center of the Boys and Girls Club,” said Heather Vogel, the District Manager of Sherwin Williams. 

The Sherwin Williams employees using their painting expertise to spruce up space where hundreds of Albuquerque kids go to learn and grow. 

“A fresh coat of paint can really transform an area, one coat can make it brand new,” said Jarred Lejune a Sales Representative for Sherwin Williams. 

Heather Vogel, the District Manager of Sherwin Williams, says it’s been a few years since the center has received a fresh coat of paint. She thinks the vibrant hues will bring new energy to the area. 

“I think these colors speak volumes, the vivid and lively colors I think the kids will enjoy.”

The project also gives these employees a chance to have fun with each other, joking and bonding all while giving back to an important organization molding the next generation. 

“The Boys and Girls Club has always done so much for the community and to come in and do something for them, is great,” said Lejune. 

This project was part of National Painting Week. Sherwin Williams donated all of the paint supplies needed to refresh The Boys and Girls Club.
