How do I get to my house?
Buses will transport volunteers to the houses for the day. When you sign in with your team, your bus number will be on the registration sheet. There is limited parking at every house and we try to be respectful of our neighbors; please do not drive yourself directly to the houses.
What should I bring with me?
Wear clothes that you are not afraid to get dirty. T-shirts will be provided for all volunteers. Your shoes should be sturdy with closed toes (no flip-flops) and you may want to bring a hat, sunglasses, sunscreen or bug spray. Please leave your valuables at home. We'll have all of the painting supplies you'll need, but feel free to bring your favorite paint brush or roller if you feel inclined to do so.
What if I get hangry?
Lunch will be delivered to the house you are painting between noon and 1 p.m. Chick-fil-A sandwiches, Grippo's chips and cookies will be provided for lunch. Vegetarian option is available upon request. If you have special dietary needs, we recommend bringing a bagged lunch.
How are we celebrating?
After a hard day of work please join us for Give Back Cincinnati’s Paint the Town After Party! This will take place at Gil Lynn Park next to Dayton High School. There will be music, food, and of course beer. Bring your ID, you will need a wristband to drink. You will receive two food tickets and two beer tickets. Additional beers can be purchased for $2.

About Paint the Town
Paint the Town 2017 takes us back to two of our past Paint the Town communities, Bellevue and Dayton, KY! Our volunteers last descended on these two communities in 2011, and we can't wait to do it again.
Selected homes will be painted by GBC volunteers, with the support of corporate sponsors, at no cost to the homeowner.
Paint the Town is a program within Give Back Cincinnati, a local nonprofit. The annual event paints the exterior of approximately 40 homes in a single day, thanks to corporate sponsors that provide funding and nearly 1,200 volunteers who provide labor.
This event has painted nearly 500 homes in 15 years, accumulating nearly 100,000 volunteer hours. Since its inception in 2001, Paint the Town has taken place in the following communities: Columbia Tusculum, Price Hill, Northside, Madisonville, Carthage & Hartwell, College Hill, Covington, Evanston & Avondale, Bellevue & Dayton, Cheviot, Norwood, Latonia and Westwood.
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. If you would like to speak to someone about becoming a sponsor, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
