BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - November 15, 2012) - The Room to Dream Foundation is pleased to announce Sherwin-Williams as the exclusive paint sponsor for the Foundation. Sherwin-Williams will donate paint to support transforming environments of children facing chronic illnesses.
"We are thrilled to be teaming up with Sherwin-Williams," states the Foundation's founder, Stefan Nathanson. "We are only able to accomplish what we do with donations from individuals and companies. Like most non-profits, we have limited budgets, so having Sherwin-Williams donate paint for all projects is a significant contribution and one that we and the families we serve deeply appreciate."
The Room to Dream Foundation is a Boston-based non-profit organization dedicated to creating healing environments for children and adolescents suffering from chronic illnesses. Focusing its services on children and families living in low- and moderate-income urban and suburban areas, the Foundation raises funds to purchase furnishings and supplies tailored to the specific needs of the child and family.
The Room to Dream Foundation relies on the caring generosity of professional and amateur artists, interior designers, builders and others who volunteer their time to transform the living spaces of the afflicted child and his/her siblings, creating a room to dream of a healthier future. The Foundation typically undertakes six to eight projects a year.
"Sherwin-Williams is honored to partner with The Room to Dream Foundation and lend a helping hand in creating comforting environments for children when they need them the most," said Mark T. Weiner, specification consultant, Sherwin-Williams. "The Foundation has done a tremendous job in bringing remodeling professionals and community volunteers together to transform spaces for children and their families."
