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.

“Richard and crew have been great, for sure. As much as I look forward to having the job done and my house back in order, I really enjoyed having them around. You should feel really good about how they represent your company.”

— Jessica Dodson

“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

“The completed 'Client Satisfaction Survey' we sent in only modestly reflects our total satisfaction with the work. As a retired small business owner, I compliment you on setting 'best practices' that are consistently followed. Everything described in your marketing materials was a reality! The crew is a super bowl team and our neighbors commented on how quiet they were. We are very happy to be a client of MB Jessee.”

“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

“I just wanted to send you an email to say that John did such a great job over here today. He is truly a hard worker. He has the perfect balance of friendliness, honesty, and professionalism. I trust him. He takes the time to do the job to the best of his ability and that is what sets him (and your company) apart from the competition. He didn't make me feel rushed. He really made me feel like our job was the most important thing in the world. Thanks again!”

“MB Jessee painters are stellar! As a designer I've worked with numerous companies over the years, and MB Jessee is a top-notch firm. From the first phone call to the final clean up, every person is courteous, professional, and hard working. The owner, Matt, is a charitable leader who has instilled his team with integrity and honesty providing the customer with a first class experience at a fair price with a paint job that is guaranteed to last. I highly recommend MB Jessee. Thank you Matt and your STAR crew-Daniel, Rigoberto, Vicente, Edy, Pedro, and Mario, for a job well executed! Cynthia Brian, ASID, Starstyle® Productions, llc”

“The finish on my kitchen cabinets had failed, becoming tacky and grimy around the handles. M B Jessee gave me a reasonable quote, far below some others, and did an outstanding job, striping the original varnish and refinishing with a new lacquer finish. The cabinets look like new. Work was done 1 day faster than estimated. The crew was extremely hard-working, considerate, and neat. Highly recommend M B Jessee.”

“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.”

“I had my wooden kitchen cabinets painted white. Anabal and Danielle were doing the job. I have nothing but praise for them. They came on time, cleaned up every day, were respective, friendly and helpful. If the rest of Jessee's crew are as great as Anabal and Danielle, this company will go far.”
