Deadline for free paint extended

Keep Oklahoma Beautiful has extended the application deadline for its Fresh Paint Days program.

Participating groups can receive free paint to rejuvenate a structure.

Applications are accepted online only, and the deadline is Friday. Find the application, project requirements and a tentative event calendar at

With donated paint from H.I.S. Coatings of OKC, a $75 stipend and the help of volunteers, groups are able to transform their communities one gallon of paint at a time.

Each completed project will be entered into KOB’s “Community Primed for Change” contest. This social media contest will highlight the before and after photos of each project by posting them to KOB’s Facebook contest page. The public will have an opportunity to vote for their favorite transformation and name the winner.

The finalists and winner will be honored at KOB’s annual Environmental Excellence Awards Celebration Nov. 19.
