Regardless of the forecast, please plan on showing up for registration. Any changes due to weather will be determined at registration.
If you are a general volunteer, or don’t remember, go to the Give Back Cincinnati registration table. There, you will be directly to join a house and will receive your t-shirt from that house's table.
Breakfast & Lunch
TransportationAll volunteers will ride school buses to their homes from Medpace. The school bus will bring you back at the end of the day. When you sign in with your team, look for your bus number on the registration sheet. Remember that number, it will get you to where you need to be.
What to BringWear clothes you aren’t afraid to get a little dirty; t-shirts will be provided for all volunteers. Your shoes should be sturdy with closed toes (no flip-flops) and don’t forget to apply sunscreen and maybe even some bug spray! You may want to bring a hat/sunglasses, but leave your valuables at home.
If you prefer to use your own supplies (i.e. paint brush, mask, goggles, gloves) we encourage you to bring your own.
After PartyAfter a hard day of work, please join us for our after party! This will take place outside of Medpace (registration location). There will be music, hot dogs, hamburgers, mac and cheese, snacks, and (of course) beer. Remember, we will ID everyone drinking. Each volunteer will receive two food tickets and two beer tickets. Additional beers can be purchased for $2.

Thank you to our generous sponsors
Paint the Town would not be possible without the generosity of local sponsors who help cover the cost of everything from food for our volunteers, to the paint, ladders and other supplies we need to get the job done.
