Paint the Town Run Saturday Funds Summer Work Camp

work campSulphur Springs Work Camp has been around since 2007 and organizers are excited to celebrate their 10th camp this summer.  Each year kids from area youth groups gather together the first week in June to paint homes for the elderly, disabled, widowed, single moms and those in financial need at no cost to the homeowner.  Since its founding SSWC has completed 162 projects.

The goal for 2016 is to paint and restore at least 22 homes. Each year the cost of camp is approximately $30,000. Organizers say it takes a lot of support from the community to make this project happen.  Paint the Town is the only fundraiser for Sulphur Springs Work Camp. Saturday, March 5th will be the third year to host the event at Buford Park.  All of the funds raised will be used to finance camp scheduled for June 5th-8th.
