Dowd and Guild Inc. & Kelly Moore Paint Day Project

Dowd and Guild Inc. and Kelly-Moore employees spent a Saturday volunteering their time to help paint the Tenderloin’s San Francisco City Academy. The Academy serves approximately 350 students from the inner city/Tenderloin area and is dedicated to raising future leaders and productive people for the world, despite the environment in which they live.

The San Francisco City Academy recently took over the Musician’s Union building, which was in tremendous need of a remodel. Dowd and Guild Inc. and Kelly-Moore donated all of the paint and sundries used in the remodel and their employees contributed by spending a Saturday painting the school. Employees were also treated to a tour of the homeless outreach program where hundreds of meals are served daily and they met the founder of the San Francisco Rescue Mission, Pastor Roger Huang.

Paint Donation Program

Dowd and Guild Inc. sponsors and administers the Paint Donation Program providing free paint to worthwhile charities around the world. Since the beginning of the program in 1996 over one million gallons of paint have been distributed. This program exists because of the generous donations from a major paint manufacturer in the Western United States.

Qualified organizations must be credentialed as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization and must use the paint for worthwhile charitable projects. Resale of the paint is not allowed.
