PPG-Colorful Communities

PITTSBURGH, US: PPG Industries Inc (PPG) announced the completion of a Colorful Communities project in Kecskemet, Hungary, that helped revitalize the learning environment of the Corvin Matyas primary school.

The Colorful Communities program provides PPG volunteers and products along with financial contributions to bring colour and vitality to communities where the company operates around the world, such as in Kecskemet, where the PPG automotive service team operates with 33 employees.

The project brought together more than 140 PPG and community volunteers who spent three days at the school revitalizing four classrooms, four changing rooms and the playground. PPG provided about $20,000 to assist with the project, including more than 460 litres of Hera Premium waterborne interior paint and Trinat Aqua waterborne enamel paint.

The Corvin Matyas primary school educates around 700 students each year. Through the Colorful Communities project, more than 21,500 square feet (2,000 square meters) of the school’s walls and ceilings were repainted and the playground received a colourful new look.

Recently the company announced the completion of a Colourful Communities project in Rolle, Switzerland, that brought colour to a local park and playground used by area residents and tourists visiting Rolle Castle.

The Colorful Communities program is PPG’s signature initiative for community engagement efforts, with the aim to protect and beautify the neighbourhoods where PPG operates around the world. The program increases PPG’s commitment to invest in communities and supports projects that transform community assets, providing PPG volunteers and donated PPG products.

“Kecskemet is an important site for PPG, and we were pleased to work with the community to create a brighter and more inviting learning environment for the primary school’s students and teachers. I was very proud that so many of our employees volunteered to be a part of this project and I look forward to more collaborative community projects in the future,” said Antonio Puzio, PPG product manager, OPTIMA EMEA, and regional account manager, Daimler Europe.
