BEND, Ore. -

Webfoot Painting Co., a leading residential and commercial painting company serving Central Oregon, announces its 4th Annual $5,000 Painting Charity Giveaway.

The Bend-based company will select one recipient in the Bend/Redmond area based on need and compelling story to receive $5,000 in free paint, labor and materials.

Last year, in an unprecedented turn of events, two people were selected as the recipients of the painting services.  The vote was extremely close and due to the size and scope of their projects, Webfoot was able to help out both families.

“Both individuals had such heartwarming and courageous stories, and with the vote being so close, we just couldn’t choose one over the other,” says Webfoot Painting owner Travis Ulrich. 

Both homes received full exterior repaints, complete with all the prep and high quality products that Webfoot Painting is known for.  They also received free color consultations from ORSA Design, a Bend-based home design company.

Webfoot Painting will begin collecting stories of worthy recipients for their 2013 $5000 Painting Charity Giveaway via their website on Tuesday, January 7th.  

For the fourth consecutive year, the entire Webfoot team will provide their time, talents and resources using paint products donated by Sherwin Williams to freshen up and restore someone’s home or office. 

Stories will be collected through the end of February with the winner being determined by a company vote in March. 

The only criteria is that you have a compelling story of why you feel you or someone else you know and care about, deserves the free painting services.  Individuals, families and non-profits may be nominated. 

Webfoot asks the community to provide written stories, pictures and any supporting materials no later than February 28, 2013 via the company’s website submission form (www.webfootpainting.com), email (gavin@webfootpainting.com), or mail (20585 Brinson Blvd #4, Bend, OR 97701).
