Kevin Weinmann says everyone needs some help at some time in life, and he wants his painting company to do its part in the community.
He decided to help a deserving family in 2015, and he asked clients and friends to nominate someone who needs some painting done but cannot afford it at this time. Lindsay and Marc Parks suggested a couple they knew through friends, and Weinmann selected them for the project.
The couple, Chris and Alisa, have been in their home for nine years but both are presently unemployed. Both are full-time students at Portland Community College, preparing for a better future for themselves and their two daughters, ages 11 and nearly a year. They decided to give up a vehicle to avoid the costs of insurance and maintenance, according to the Parks’ information. With little income and no car, however, maintaining their two-bedroom, 1,000-square-foot house has been difficult. Friends helped Chris and Alisa work on landscaping and exterior painting.
“The interior could certainly use the talents of Weinmann Painting,” according to the Parks’ nomination.
“We are excited to be painting at no charge for Alisa and Chris and their two kids,” said Kevin Weinmann. The project shows, he said, “what can be done to help others.”
