Let’s Beautify Tacoma – Trainings

For the 33rd year, Associated Ministries will be bringing together volunteers to help paint the homes of low-income homeowners.  Through our program, Paint Tacoma-Pierce Beautiful, we have painted nearly 2,200 homes!

Crew leads receive a 2-hour training to review safety, tips for prepping and painting a home, and selection of a project.  Crews are typically 5-15 people, and individuals are welcome to sign up and attend a training as well.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome; younger volunteers must have adult supervision.  Painting typically happens in July and August of each year, but can extend if the weather is cooperative.  All trainings will be held in the garage of Associated Ministries.  To learn more about how to support the program, you can visit www.associatedministries.org/ptpb.

Ready to Serve in Times of Disaster

All of our communities will one day be affected by a disaster – whether natural, such as storms or earthquakes or a volcano erupting as Mt. St. Helens did 37 years ago today, or caused by accidental or deliberate human conduct. When that time comes, will you be ready to help?

Learn more about how you can help in times of disaster at a Care Teams training! Disaster Response Care Teams are groups of trained volunteers who provide support, compassion, and resources to those affected by disasters.  Training and materials are free!

The next Care Team training will take place on:

Saturday, June 10, 2017, 9 – 11 AM
Bethlehem Baptist Church
4818 Portland Avenue, Tacoma, WA 98404

The topic is Psychological First Aid – understanding the impact of disasters, and how to be a calming presence and emotional support to survivors. Coffee and refreshments will be served.

Volunteer with Paint Tacoma

“I cried tears of joy. It looks beautiful. My house is beautiful.”

“On Social Security, I can’t afford to pay someone to paint my house. The volunteers’ help means the world to me.”

 “The crew was awesome. I’d be happy to recommend Paint Tacoma to anyone.”

These are a few of the words of gratitude shared by homeowners served by Paint Tacoma volunteers last year! You, too, can bring joy to low-income homeowners – most of whom are elderly or disabled – by serving as a Paint Tacoma volunteer.

Gather together friends, family, group members or coworkers to form a paint crew, or sign up as an individual and we’ll place you with a paint project. Whether you can serve for one day only, or can work on a project from start to finish, we can use your help!

Not into painting? There are other ways to get involved, from repairs, to supply delivery, to photography. For more information, contact Wendy Morris at wendym@associatedministries.org or 253-426-1501.
