Truckee’s Kelly Brothers Painting giving away free paint jobs

Special to the Sun

TRUCKEE, Calif. — At the Truckee Fourth of July parade, a representative for Kelly Brothers Painting announced the recipients of the business’s first-ever Paint it Forward charity giveaway.

Per the giveaway, according to Kelly Brothers, any deserving family or nonprofit organization could be nominated to receive the gift of free painting services.

Deserving entries from all around Truckee and Lake Tahoe were received, but ultimately the employees of Kelly Brothers Painting voted to choose the following winners: the Gianna Harrington Family, the Nora Pasciak Family, and Boys and Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe.

Gianna Harrington, a teacher at Glenshire Elementary, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in April 2016. Her story touched the hearts of many people within the community, and several residents nominated her for the Paint it Forward giveaway.

Nora Pasciak is a single mother of a 5-year-old and 6-month-old who has fallen on hard times with work. Her mother nominated Nora.

The Boys and Girls Club of North Lake Tahoe was nominated more than once. So many kids and families have been touched by this nonprofit.

The Kelly family takes pride in finding ways to give back to the local communities. Join the movement with us next year and submit your nomination, starting April 2017, for the second annual giveaway.
