PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

The SAITennial Squad has the opportunity to make a huge difference in the life of a senior in our community through the City of Calgary “Paint the Town” program!

The “Paint the Town” program is run by the City of Calgary Seniors Services to assist low income seniors with exterior painting and minor repairs – at no cost to the senior. The “Paint the Town” project was launched to support seniors who cannot afford, or are physically unable, to maintain their residence. The spirit of the project reflects the desire of seniors to stay in their own homes and communities and is vital to maintain independence and well-being.
