Ayers Partners with Westwood Elementary for Paint Your Heart Out Project

by on May 17th, 2016 in Campus Events

As a Community Partner of Westwood Elementary School, Ayers Career College is proud to volunteer, or offer donations, for projects they are involved in. Last week, the staff at Westwood painted the homes of elderly or disabled residents of Shreveport as part of the “Paint Your Heart Out” program. Ayers was happy to supply everyone with cold water to keep them cool!

Ayers partners with Westwood Elementary for "Paint Your Heart Out" 2016

“Paint Your Heart Out” is a long standing tradition in our community – nearly a quarter of a century old! This year, 1,000 Volunteers painted the homes of fifty elderly and disabled people in Shreveport, and also provided homeowners with working smoke alarms.

The program started in 1992, and almost 1,500 homes have been painted since the program launched. Funding for this program comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, via the Community Development Block Grant, as well as from private donations from those in the community. The entire project costs a little more than $300,000 and includes prep work, paint and supplies. This year, there was a total of 61 paint teams, 19 of those paint teams were from Barksdale Air Force Base!
