We are currently looking for a larger WAREHOUSE facility to store our paint in the Atlanta area.
Beyond Atlanta, we may also need small storage or containers to enable our volunteers to collect more paint. For example, in the Chicago area, we have numerous people wanting to donate. However, we are currently collecting only as we find a project that can use the paint. Having small storages or containers in that area could change how we are able to collect. If you live outside of the Atlanta area and have storage contacts, please get in touch with us so we may assess the likelihood of necessity.
