Project Color—8 Years, Stronger Than Ever!

Hello Friend! The days are growing shorter and colder bit by bit; autumn is here. As I do every year around this time, today I spent some time leafing through our Project Color files. It is filled with letters, stories, and pictures of nominees from years gone by. It is both hard and wonderful to believe that we are about to enter our 8th year of our annual $10,000 Painting for Charity event, Project Color. Can you believe that?! The work we’ve done with Project Color over the years and the people we’ve been able to help is something that is very close to our hearts at MB Jessee.

That, my friends, is where you come in! We are looking for a deserving Bay Area family or an outstanding nonprofit organization that badly needs painting but simply cannot afford it. What we want from you is to nominate them! All you need do is send us their story along with some pictures—help us see, feel and understand why they deserve to win our $10,000 painting makeover! You can even do it anonymously if you like. Then MB Jessee Inc as a whole—every one of us!—will meet and vote to choose the winner. The painting will take place in spring 2013.

Some of our past Project Color winners include Oakland’s Primera Hispana Iglesia Presbiteriana, Berkeley’s North County Women’s Shelter and Women’s Cancer Resource Center, San Francisco’s Tenderloin Children’s Center and Mission Neighborhood Health Center, Claremont Middle School in Oakland, and Concord’s We Care for Children.

So please, won’t you take a moment to nominate a deserving family or nonprofit organization that you know deserves our help? Ring our phones off the hook and flood our email inboxes! You may send stories and pictures by email or USPS: julie@mbjessee.com or MB Jessee Inc 1552 Beach Street Suite G, Oakland CA 94608. For more information or flyers, please call 510.655.7000.

The deadline for submissions is Friday December 14th, 2012.

— Kathleen A

“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

“Matt, Julie & Ricardo, I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank the three of you for the wonderful job you did in hosting the SFBA NARI Chapter Meeting on Wednesday evening. Everything was perfect from beginning to end. Members and guests alike walked away with a truly positive experience. The "painter for a day" and the cookies in the paint cans were an absolute brilliant touch and received rave reviews. What a wonderful way to do such positive marketing. Thanks again for a truly memorable experience for our members and guests. You are valued as a NARI member.”

— Judy Tufo, SFBA NARI Executive Director

“Hello Matt,Just another notice of thanks to your wonderful crew, Rigoberto, Javier and John. They did fantastic work, with Rigo providing meticulous and conscientious attention to the details and excellent woodwork finishing, as evidenced by the beautiful fireplace. Javier did a fantastic job in the bathroom especially, it looks "brand new," and John always does quality work, both with the interior and exterior. I can tell they care about what they do. Rigo's "punch out" was very thorough, too. I will call again when I need some more work and will definitely recommend your company and fine crew. I also felt as a homeowner, I could leave my house in their good hands during the day and that took a lot of worry from me, they were honest, prompt and reliable. They were also very kind, respectful and clean in their work, very professional. Thank you.”

— Beth Marx & Melissa Kirsch

“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.”

“My entire experience with MB Jesse was very professional. The crew were very friendly and super accommodating of my ridiculous schedule and geriatric pets in the house. The finished product, which was pretty much my entire house, far exceeds my expectations. Would definitely work with them again!”

— Heather Jordan

“Edy and crew are hard at work. They are doing a great job. Very professional outfit you have. Your crew is a delight. You may use me for a reference!”

— Heidi B

“Just had MB Jessee paint the interior of our house and they did a wonderful job. They tackled some crazy wallpaper as well as painted some very high ceilings and walls. The whole process was quick and they did a great job! We are very pleased. I was also very impressed by the crew. They were very personable, kind and actually took pride in the work they were doing. In one of our conversations with the lead Ricardo, he actually told me he was very proud of how the rooms had turned out. I agree sir! It turned out great and it's not often you hear someone thinking of your home like they would theirs, and putting that level of work and quality into it. That made a huge difference in how I viewed this company. Ricardo, you were fantastic and thank you for the great job, we will be using you again.”

“I want to express my thanks for a job well done. The rooms look great and there is no problem with any marks on the all the trim, floor, carpet, etc. The paint job is lovely. I also want to express my thanks for the level of professionalism the foreman showed in running the job. He was very attentive to any changes I needed to make, was extremely careful in getting the faux paint color and effect correct. Thanks so much for a job well done.”

— Suzan D’Arcy

“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”
