Paint is Donated to Affiliate

Habitat for Humanity of Mariposa County has received six palettes of old True Value Hardware paint from Troy Foster of the new Foster Ace Hardware. The paint is now available, for sale at a discounted price, at the affiliate’s Warehouse Sales on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 5320 Highway 49 North, in the back of the building that houses the Habitat office. Local Habitat volunteers recognize Foster’s generous support of safe, decent and affordable housing in Mariposa County.

People often ask, “What is Habitat for Humanity’s A Brush With Kindness program?”

The program is another way that Habitat can help homeowners in the community and in the county. Low-income homeowners, especially single parents, the elderly and the disabled, may apply to the program when they are in need of minor repairs, yard cleanup and exterior painting.  A Brush With Kindness (ABWK) helps homeowners stay in their homes by making homes safer and better maintained.

Some jobs that ABWK crews might do include fixing broken windows and doors, loose siding, rotting soffits and fascia, and peeling paint. Yard cleanup is also a part of ABWK, and through this program Habitat for Humanity is helping to beautify communities nationwide.

The criteria used for selecting families for these projects are

1) need;

2) willingness to partner with Habitat for Humanity of Mariposa County; and

3) ability to repay a 0% loan for materials used in the project.

Families or individuals may be asked to put in “sweat equity” by helping with the project as they are able.  One homeowner in Mariposa County donated fruit from her trees to a food pantry and knit blankets for the homeless as her “sweat equity” because she was unable to do the physical labor.

Due to the fact that Habitat often uses donated materials, costs for these projects are generally low.  Homeowners are asked to repay the costs if they are able, so the program may serve more people. Payments are placed in a revolving fund so there is money for the next project. An affordable-loan repayment plan can be worked out, as needed.

Those interested in applying for the ABWK program may call the Habitat office at 966-7444 for more information.  They will be referred to the new ABWK chairman, Bruce Pickard.
