Brush Up Nebraska


Employing the “many hands make light work” philosophy of an Amish barn raising, Brush Up Nebraska has been beautifying the community since 1989. The group’s Paint-A-Thon’s that have spruced up almost 2,400 homes over the years do more than just apply a fresh coat on the canvas that is Omaha, they also serve to promote a sense of dignity and community for the low-income elderly and low-income disabled homeowners served in the program.

Designed to be the sort of high-impact, high-visibility, short-duration program that works for even the busiest of young professionals who want to give back to the community, the Paint-A-Thons are also great social experiences.

The group serves the Omaha metropolitan area that includes Bellevue, Gretna, Elkhorn, LaVista, Ralston, Papillion and Council Bluffs.
Homeowners are selected in mid-July, so now is the perfect time to gather a team for some fun, paint-splattered volunteerism. Where else can you wear latex (paint, that is) without drawing undue attention?

This year’s event is August 20th. Information on volunteering, donating and corporate sponsorship is available at www.brushupnebraska.org.
