The Patrician Society of Norristown got a fresh new look recently, thanks to the generosity of Pennsylvania’s largest family-owned residential painting business, writes Guy Puleo for the Daily Times.
Nolan Painting donated nearly $8,000 in labor and materials to renovate the charitable organization’s headquarters at 121 E. Chestnut St.
The charitable effort is part of the Havertown-based Nolan’s “Nolan in the Neighborhood” community outreach program, which is focused on improving communities, particularly in the areas of education, the environment, health and fitness, and local history, the company noted.
“We are absolutely immersed in the communities where we work and live,” said Kevin Nolan, president and CEO of Nolan Painting. “We have an obligation to give back and proudly contribute both time and money to support the causes we care about.
Each year, Nolan Painting invests $100,000 in charities and community events, with employees donating more than 1,000 volunteer hours to community service.
Previous beneficiaries have included Alex’s Lemonade Stand; Four Mills Barn at the Wissahickon Valley Watershed; A Better Chance House; Baker Industries; Angel Flight East; Freedom Playground; Travis Manion Foundation; American Red Cross; the Grange Estate and Knox Covered Bridge.
