The Des Plaines Department of Health and Human Services is helping to coordinate the annual Paint-A-Thon to take place on September 27, 2014. This event organizes volunteers to paint the exteriors of homes owned by people with limited resources who are at least 60 years old or have a permanent disability that makes them unable to do the work themselves.

To volunteer, contact Annette Sommer at HandsOn Suburban Chicago at or (847) 228-1320. Individuals who would like to apply to have their homes painted, must complete this form and mail it to the address on the form.
