Painters add colour to lives of less fortunate, Sault Saint Marie

This summer Dulux Paints is looking to brighten up communities across the 50 countries they’re based in with « Let’s Colour » painting events.
Locally, they’ve decided to spread some colour that hopefully will inspire re-birth where men need it most – at St. Vincent Place.
« Colours change peoples attitude, » explained Dwayne Tuckett, store manager at Dulux Paints in the Sault. « They encourage and uplift people and we wanted to infuse the people around our community who need it the most with exactly that. »
The cosmetic update is a much needed one for St. Vincent – which hasn’t been painted since it’s opening in 2003.
« In talking to different places around the community they pushed us towards the mens shelter and we saw why when we went down there, » Tuckett said.
St. Vincent Place is a men’s shelter that can hold up to 24 guests at a time and dishes out 10,000 units of food yearly.
On Saturday, some 14 volunteers from as far as Sudbury gathered at its location on 222 Albert St. E. to paint the soup kitchen area, banquet/conference rooms and main floor.
« I came out because when I first got a tour of the place it was very inspiring. I wanted to get involved and help give them a lift up, » said Pam Jurich, a customer service representative at Dulux volunteering on Saturday.
They will return to update the bedrooms in September.
St. Vincent place manger Nat Cicchelli said without Duplux’s donation – valued at over $4000 – they wouldn’t have been able to complete renovations.
It’s all part of a renewal project including new showers for the upstairs living domain, along with something Cicchelli feels will keep visitors from returning.
« We’re planning on opening a computer area in the fall so we can teach these guys transferable skills that will help them be successful when they return to the community, » he said.
Cicchelli – who has been with the St. Vincent place since January – said they’ve already received two computers and need three more.
Since taking over the 48-year-old has been charged with organizing their renovations, mainly with an eye towards seeking necessary materials and funding.
Those waiting to donate either can reach Cicchelli at 705-253-2770 ext. 5 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
