COLUMBIA SAVINGS COLORADO PAINT-A-THON TO BENEFIT ELDERLY, DISABLED AND LOW INCOME ACROSS STATE

 COLUMBIA SAVINGS COLORADO PAINT-A-THON
 TO BENEFIT ELDERLY, DISABLED AND LOW INCOME ACROSS STATE
 DENVER, July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- The 1992 Columbia Savings Colorado Paint-a-thon, set for Saturday, Aug. 15, will benefit elderly, disabled and low-income homeowners and families across the state, event organizers say.
 The Paint-a-thon, now in its 14th year, will involve 5,000 volunteers painting 500 homes in Denver and more than 51 outlying communities. By painting these homes, volunteers help homeowners maintain a safe living environment, keep up their homes' appearance and foster a sense of pride in the community. Paint and painting services are free of charge to qualifying homeowners and families.
 The business community, state organizations and several foundations have generously funded the Paint-a-thon. They are: Columbia Savings, the El Pomar Foundation, Affiliated Banks, the Colorado Housing and Finance Authority, the Colorado Division of Housing and Colorado Bankshares. The Paint-a-thon still needs $20,000 to cover paint costs for 200 homes.
 Paint-a-thon volunteer groups show up at worksites with workers and painting tools, and Diamond Vogel Paints of Denver provides the Paint-a-thon with more than 5,000 gallons of paint. Public Service Co. of Colorado will deliver paint to participating communities throughout the state.
 Joe Giron, president of Brothers Redevelopment Inc., said, "We have had wonderful response from community leaders statewide who have heard about the Columbia Savings Colorado Paint-a-thon and want to bring the event to their own community. We are pleased that so many Colorado communities have joined in this year's effort, and we hope to involve even more such communities in next year's event."
 Individuals and organizations interested in contributing to the Columbia Savings Colorado Paint-a-thon may send their donations c/o Mary Bernuth, Brothers Redevelopment Inc., 1111 Osage St., Suite 210, Denver, CO 80204.
