“I came across this project on a sales call with one of my sales managers and we ended up getting 14 volunteers including store managers, assistant managers and one of our employees that wanted to help,” Aquino said. “So we were able to get four rooms painted for them — two coats — in about four hours so hopefully that helps the project move along the way.”
He said the group was so impressed by the Gunnarsons’ project to help foster families that the company will “likely come back a second time down the road,” to help paint more rooms.
Roxann Gunnarson said the help was needed, and the quality of work was certainly appreciated.
“It definitely does help and we so appreciate all of their help,” she said. “They were great workers and did a great job.”
Father’s House hopes to open in the fall, she said.
