Through the Paint a Wonderful Charity with Your Generosity program, homeowners are provided with an opportunity to donate five percent of the cost of all contracted labor to the Cancer Wellness Center. The funds aid the organization's mission, which focuses on providing support to families and patients coping with cancer.
"The families and their loved-ones affected by cancer receive 100 percent of the donations from the Paint a Wonderful Charity with Your Generosity program," said Nancy Laatsch, executive director, at the Cancer Wellness Center. "We are delighted to partner with Hester Painting & Decorating."
Since its inception, the Paint a Wonderful Charity with Your Generosity program has supported a number of deserving organizations, including the Alzheimer's Association, the Boys and Girls Club of Chicago and Children's Memorial Hospital division of neurology. This winter marks the third year Hester Painting & Decorating has supported the Cancer Wellness Center.
