Project Color 2014
On Saturday, July 19, the professional painters at MB Jessee gave the Raphael House of San Francisco a new look with Project Color 2014. “New paint represents a fresh start for the families and staff at the Raphael House,” said Rachel Brandwene, Raphael House Social Worker.
With seventeen painters, the Raphael House Family Services Building was transformed by the MB Jessee team. Room after room new paint color brightened up the space. “It is awesome that Raphael House can offer its programs to the homeless families and we are grateful to ALL who help!” said Binita, Raphael House receptionist.
“I’ve been down before, and people gave freely to help me out. Now, I get a chance to help others in need and pay it forward.” shared Brian List, MB Jessee painter from Oakland.
For seven hours on Saturday, the team prepared and painted every room in the annex, even a purple wall was added to the back of the big room (color consultation by Laura Martin Bovard, designer). All the paint was donated by Mark’s Paint, and the additional painting supplies donated by Sherwin Williams of Oakland. It was a “team effort” said Matt Jessee, MB Jessee President and Piedmont dad. “This is our ninth year for Project Color, and we all love to support our community, especially the kids.”
The attention to detail is a signature for the MB Jessee team. They tape edges, cut in straight lines by steady hands, and add beauty to the room or home. “Project Color means giving back to the community with our trade and talents,” said Daniel Lima, MB Jessee Project Manager. “This was my first year, and I look forward to the next one!”!
