The Annual Paint-a-Thon is a collaborative effort between Community Action of Southeast Iowa, Two Rivers Bank and Diamond Vogel Paint. The event started in 1993 and is held at the beginning of September each year.
Two Rivers Bank provides the advertising, pays for volunteer t-shirts and a luncheon. Diamond Vogel supplies all the paint that is used and Community Action helps choose the houses to be painted and does small repairs on the houses if necessary.
In 20 years over 11,000 volunteers have helped paint 426 homes in Des Moines County using 6,650 gallons of paint.
Volunteers from many community organizations volunteer to help paint with their team. It is a great way to help people and help the community.
