Louisville, Ky. — Many homes in the Louisville area will be getting a colorful facelift, thanks to the generosity of Brownsboro Hardware & Paint. Not only that, but more homes in the city also will be built as a result.

The company recently donated some $10,000 in new paint to Habitat for Humanity ReStore, according to a press release from Do it Best Corp. ReStore will have the paint available for customers at reduced rates at their two retail locations, and proceeds from the sales will go to help more local families in need of affordable housing.

“Community support from generous donors such as  Brownsboro Hardware is why the Habitat ReStore is successful,” said Angela Brooks, director of the Louisville Habitat ReStore. “This paint donation that their crew tinted in different shades of blues, greens and oranges, is a great, popular item to sell at the Habitat ReStore. It generates thousands of dollars in income that supports Habitat Louisville’s mission of transforming lives and strengthening our community through the power of homeownership.”

“We are passionate about helping our community,” added Jim Lehrer, co-owner of Brownsboro Hardware & Paint.” The loyalty and support of our existing customers enables us to ‘pay it forward’ with this gift of paint to the Habitat for Humanity’s ReStores. It is fitting that a hardware and paint store such as ours is able to provide supplies that will help people paint their homes and assist in building new ones.

The donated paint is available for purchase at the two Louisville Habitat ReStore locations.

“The Louisville Habitat ReStore is grateful for Brownsboro Hardware’s paint donation,” added  Brooks. “Through the support of community-minded partners like Brownsboro Hardware, the proceeds from the sale of their donations will be reinvested back into Habitat’s mission to help local families build stable, affordable housing.”
