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.

Customer Reviews

“I highly recommend MB Jesse Painting to anyone looking for a professional team that does an impressive job. They are on time, efficient and clean up well each and every day they are on site. They pay attention to detail and listen to the needs of their clients. In addition, they give back to the community. A Five Star team all the way around.”

— Erin Troy

“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

“Our paint crew did a great job and the foreman, Gersson was exceptionally great to work with. He was always available to answer questions, good at problem-solving, very patient, kind, and highly professional with great customer service. We definitely recommend this company, and Gersson and his crew.”

“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

“Matt, We are very happy with how all of the painting worked out. We were extremely impressed with the quality of the work in the bathroom. I liked working with Victor, he and Marvin were extremely conscientious about doing a great job, not just the minimum. I know the front door took a lot longer than you'd expected. But they did it PERFECTLY. We never thought it could turn out like that! Thanks again for the great work. We'll be calling you again in the future!”

“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.”

“The people at M.B. Jessee are great – from the painters to the office staff to Matt. Talk about leadership from the top.”

— Kevin Ames, Mark Becker Homes

“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!”

“The kitchen looks NEW! You guys are amazing.”

“MB Jessee just finished our exterior and we couldn't be happier with our experience. The foreman (Pedro) and lead painter (Ricardo) were incredible to work with: they communicated scheduling clearly, Ricardo was a joy to be around every day, the showed up early every day, were incredibly tidy and did great paint work. The final walkthrough experience was incredible. Pedro pointed out items I missed demonstrating a clear desire to complete another quality project. I highly recommend them. As others have noted they definitely aren't the cheapest but you quickly realize that you're getting what you pay for. The 3-year guarantee is also a nice touch since there are likely touch-up items that will show up after the job is done.”

“Just wanted to let you know that the crew was great to have around the house for the past two weeks. All three of them were professional, courteous, and attentive to my thoughts/concerns and were extremely knowledgeable. They paid great attention to the detail and it shows.”
