Paint the Town Volunteer
The City of Calgary reviewed the Paint the Town program in 2019, and has determined it is no longer viable to sustain this service in tandem with delivering our core lawn care, snow removal and housekeeping services.
When the program started in 1998, it was a unique way to offer volunteer opportunities to corporate Calgary with one-time paint opportunities for older adults participating in the Seniors Services Home Maintenance program. In the 22 years since, hundreds of volunteers have helped older adults with paint projects at their homes. Although this particular volunteer opportunity is coming to a close, The City offers many other unique volunteer experiences to choose from that can be found by visiting calgary.ca/volunteer or by calling 311 to inquire.
The City of Calgary remains committed to helping older adults in need of lawn care, snow removal and housekeeping services and to using resources in a way that is responsible, sustainable and related to our core services.
