Painting for Charity: Project Color 2018 Mission Accomplished!

As a local painter in the Bay Area, MB Jessee is honored to be a part of this wonderful community. There are so many positive, service-oriented people who give of themselves to help others, which is why we have our Project Color program: to give back to the people and organizations who give so much to others!

We consider it a privilege to be able to support these wonderful groups by providing up to $10,000 worth of painting supplies and labor. Every day at work, we see the way fresh paint can bring people joy and new energy, making them feel better about their lives and their homes. With our Project Color, we get to provide this for some truly remarkable charities.

Our Project Color recipient for 2018 is the Oakland Elizabeth House, an amazing organization that provides support for women and children who are affected by homelessness, violence, or addiction. They provide a safe cooperative living environment, counseling, education, job search assistance, tutoring, and other training in practical skills, with the goal of helping the clients to become independent and productive.

It was our pleasure to serve the Elizabeth House in 2015, when we did interior painting for them. This year, we focused on the exterior painting, rejuvenating its appearance for years to come!

The Painting Process

We began the day with a (maybe not so healthy) breakfast, and a planning powwow:


Then we started the process by protecting the non-painted surfaces and getting all our equipment in place.


Once the painting began, it was smooth sailing!


We sprayed, brushed, and rolled our way over every surface, top to bottom!


Lunch was a delicious way to take a break.


And by the end of the day, the results were evident!

Customer Reviews

“It was a great experience working with MB Jessee. The crew was careful and thorough as they painted the house, sealed stucco cracks, repaired dry-rotted wood, stained the deck, etc. Robert, Gersson, Jose, and all of the people involved in the process from the estimate to the job completion were friendly and professional.”

“Charles finished yesterday and did a fantastic job. We really enjoyed meeting Charles and having him in our home. He is a great guy in addition to his attention to detail in his work, the protection of our floors, walls and furnishings, and his overall interaction with us both. I would be pleased to recommend him to any of my clients.”

— Ken Morrison

“Everyone I dealt with was nice, helpful, and very professional. The price was reasonable! (I didn't feel like I was getting the "San Francisco price." The attention to detail and work quality was excellent. They did what they said they would do in the exact timeframe they said they would do. Highly recommend!”

— Tim Tyson

“I cannot imagine finer painters--and I have worked with many. They work exceptionally hard. It is a joy to see their workmanship!”

— Alicia R.

“Thank you for the support you have given the Women's Cancer Resource Center over the past year!”

— Margo - Director Women's Cancer Resource Center

“Julie, by the way, I have never been so impressed with the service of a painting job before! It was like magical elves came and painted our walls without us having to do a thing! It looks amazing and just wanted to let you know how happy we are. Thanks”

— Anja

“In September, MBJessee finished painting two sides of our 3-story condominium building (six owners). We were impressed by the professionalism of the company and every one of its workers, Matt Jessee couldn't have been more helpful in planning the project. His painters were well-trained, easy to communicate with and eager to please. In addition to painting the stucco, they made extensive repairs on windows and frames, which will save us considerable money in the future. They finished earlier than anticipated, with as many as five men working on the job, and the scaffolding came down the next day. All of us were delighted with the results. Now my husband and I are looking forward to having MB Jessee paint our own apartment later this month. Matt and Gustavo (who will be our crew leader again) have explained how they will work to make the painting proceed smoothly while we're living here, and they have been endlessly patient with our protracted decision-making process. If you look at their website, you'll learn that MB Jessee is an exemplary company that takes good care of its workers as well as its customers, and contributes public service projects to the community. All in all, we can't recommend MB Jessee highly enough.”

“Very easy to work with, they did an outstanding job with our project of re-painting our painting our kitchen cabinets. Given the scope of the job and that our kitchen is roughly half of our upstairs living area they did a fantastic job of minimizing the mess. Workmanship was top notch, would definitely recommend.”

— Vince Scola

“I can't say enough about how courteous and professional my foreman was. He was on time every morning and arrived cheerful and ready to go. He is highly organized and very thoughtful. He was extremely careful and respectful when moving my belongings - a mature professional.”

— Nora Robinson

“Julie,Just to let you know I am very appreciative of your crew catching the plumbing/mold problem. It was very astute of them. I wanted to let you know that again your crew has done excellent work here, please pass this along to Mr. Jessee. There are some bumps in the road here, but the painting and your crew has not been one of them. Their work is the only thing going right currently, and this crew is very nice and respectful. It is much appreciated. Thank you again.”

— Beth
