This week is National Painting Week, and to mark the occasion, KB Home and Sherwin Williams have teamed up to complete a painting project that will benefit the Marana community. On Friday, May 26, the two companies joined forces to repaint a Marana maintenance building located near Ora Mae Harn Park. This project helps beautify one of Marana’s parks with a fresh coat of paint.
“I grew up in the Marana community,” says Division President of KB Home Amy McReynolds. “For us to donate time and efforts and to partner with Sherwin Williams is a great way to give back.”
Across the community, the Town of Marana maintains a huge number of separate facilities of all shapes and sizes. The Marana Municipal Complex alone includes a sprawling campus that houses the Marana Police Department, Parks and Recreation, and administration offices. Elsewhere in the Town, a wide variety of municipal structures all require regular maintenance. By taking on this project, KB Home and Sherwin Williams are helping support this effort.
“I’m personally from Marana,” explains Rob Kallal, a sales representative of Sherwin Williams. “This was a great opportunity to give back to the community. Sherwin Williams is about community first, and everything else follows.”
This is far from the first year these two organizations have partnered for a community project. In fact, they collaborate every year on these kinds of projects during National Painting Week.
“Marana as a community benefits from a number of partnerships with the private sector,” says Parks and Recreation Director Cynthia Nemeth-Briehn. “We deeply appreciate KB Home and Sherwin Williams for their contributions to Marana. This project supports our larger efforts to serve the community.”
