TOGETHER, WE MAKE A DIFFERENCE
Whether it’s a school, Boys & Girls Club
or other youth-development focused nonprofit in need, something as simple as a
new coat of paint can energize a dreary space and motivate youth. Research
confirms that new paint and the cleanliness of walls can have an impact on youth
attitudes and academic performance.
That's why, in partnership
with True Value retailers, True Value Foundation provides 20-gallon paint
grants through the Painting a Brighter Future program. Over 1,800 schools and
youth-focused nonprofits across the country have been awarded paint since the
program’s inception in 2009, covering over 21 million square feet of learning

OUR ASTHMA & ALLERGY FRIENDLY CERTIFIED PAINT
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) and Allergy Standards Limited (ASL) has announced that EasyCare Ultra Premium Acrylic Latex* paint by True Value has earned the asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Mark. The asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Program, an independent program established in the United States by AAFA with their partner ASL, helps consumers identify products more suitable for people with asthma and allergies. The program performs physical and chemical testing on products to ensure they minimize irritants and pollutants in the air and reduce potential exposure to allergens. Strong fumes and odors from paint can irritate the eyes, skin and airways. This is largely due to potentially harmful chemicals, or volatile organic compounds (VOCs), commonly found in many paints. VOCs are chemicals released into the air as paint dries. VOCs can irritate sensitive airways, causing asthma symptoms. The asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Mark is awarded only to products that are scientifically proven to reduce potential exposure to asthma and allergy triggers. To learn more, click here.
