Q. Who can be a painter?

A. We encourage volunteers to join us in groups of at least five individuals; however, if your group has fewer members than this you can still participate. We require children to have adult supervision. Volunteer information can be found here.

Q. When is Paint Day?

A. PYHO Lakeland has its annual Paint Day in the month of March when our Florida weather has not quite risen to extreme temperatures. During this annual Paint Day, as many as 25 houses are painted.

Q. What if I have no experience painting, but want to to volunteer my time in other ways?

A. Our volunteers have different experience levels when it comes to painting. We also have opportunities for volunteers to help with pre-Paint Day preparations, serving refreshments to painters, and photographing our event. We also greatly appreciate monetary donations.
