A Little Paint Can Work Wonders for Communities

(NewsUSA) - What can a little paint do for communities? Sometimes a whole lot. 

As part of "The Can Do Project," for every one-gallon can of Valspar interior and exterior paint that is purchased at Lowe's from March 25 through April 1, Valspar will donate a gallon to Habitat for Humanity to go toward their commitment of 250,000 gallons. 

This one-for-one match is only the latest initiative in Valspar's 20-year partnership with the nonprofit organization, and together they are helping families create a better future for themselves through homeownership. 

In fact, over those two decades, Valspar's almost $99 million worth of cash and paint donations have aided more than 98,000 families. It's truly amazing what a can of paint can do.

Help us save student newsrooms


In conjunction with Save Student Newsrooms day on April 25, we launched our $3,500 campaign to provide our newsroom with some of the tools and resources needed to compete in the digital world.

We are asking for your generosity at this time to help us update our multimedia equipment.

We have not been able be purchase any multimedia equipment since 2013 and are working with lenses that are 17 years old. Unfortunately, we often rely on students using their own equipment.

Your donations will not only help Emerald Media Group produce better content, but it will also better prepare our student journalists for professional positions by giving them opportunities to use state of the art equipment.

Thank you for your continued support and commitment to the Emerald Media Group and our student journalists.
