Paint Donation Drive at McHenry County College in Chicago, Illinois
Global Paint for Charity, Inc. (GPC) has embraced the importance of protecting the environment as it enriches the lives of the underserved population worldwide. So what better way to properly dispose of unused paint sitting in basements, garages, and business inventories than to recycle it to help families in need around the world? That’s what GPC has done for the past 10 years.
The Social Innovation Academy and McHenry County College students would like to invite you all to our first Annual Paint Donation Drive at McHenry County College in Chicago, IL (Parking Lots A and C) on Saturday, June 19, 2021, from 9:00 to 1:00 pm. Paint Collection (limit 20 one-gallon cans and 5 one-bucket containers per donor) Cost is $1/1 gallon and $5/5 gallons.
Our goal is to recycle 4,000 gallons!

For more information or to volunteer, please contact Global Paint at firstname.lastname@example.org, call toll-free at 855-853-7772.
NOTE: To ensure our attendees’ safety, all attendees are encouraged to wear masks and remain in their vehicles at all times.
Containers (Buckets or Cans of paint) or boxes of quarts should be placed on the trunks or backs of vehicles, where they will be removed by Global Paint representatives and McHenry County College students.
We ask everyone to consider donating a small financial donation to help us cover expenses such as collecting, processing, and shipping the paint to those in need. The donation is a lot, much less than what your local waste management agencies would charge to dispose of your unwanted paint. In addition, global Paint will issue tax deduction receipts right away. So it is a win-win for everyone.
Don’t forget to bring cash or a personal check.
Thank you so very much.
