Galveston Historical Foundation is seeking volunteers to help complete upcoming Paint Pals projects during the month of October. Paint Pals welcomes community members and groups interested in volunteering to help complete houses selected into the program.

GHF Preservation and Conservation, with support from the Moody Methodist Permanent Endowment Fund, offers homeowners a range of assistance options to help apply an exterior, protective coat of paint to selected applicants homes. The primary focus is to assist low-income homeowners improve their house by supplying them with everything needed for their paint project. To qualify for Paint Pals, recipients must own and reside at the house.

The next project will be at 2528 Post Office. The house, historically named the Mollie Walters Female Boarding House, is larger than typical project homes and painting will be conducted on multiple weekends. Upcoming dates are: November 7, 8, 9 and 14. GHF provides all needed painting supplies and only asks volunteers to wear work clothes and bring a desire to help improve their community.

For more information or to volunteer, please contact Matt Farragher at 409-750-9108 ext. 1316 or at matt.farragher@galvestonhistory.org.
