“Paint the Town Blue” Campaign FAQs




What is the “Paint the Town Blue” Campaign?

Each of our Board of Directors has created a team who has pledged to join our mission to better the lives of our community’s youth in donating at least $100 a year. In addition, these team members are individually creating their own teams, in which they will get another 5 or so members to make a pledge to donate $100 or more a year. Our goal is to get 100 new donors at a consistent $100 a year.
