The sad truth is that more than 14 million American schools suffer from deteriorating conditions. A new coat of paint can be a true refreshment, not just for the eyes, but also for the mind. The True Value Foundation has created the "Painting a Brighter Future" program. In partnership with area True Value retailers, the program provides up to 40 gallons of paint to schools in need each year. See if a school in your area qualifies for a "Painting a Brighter Future" grant.
