On Saturday, November 15, Phoenix business law firm Jaburg Wilk participated in the 501(c)3 non-profit organization New City Phoenix’s Painting Blitz to revitalize the marginalized neighborhoods in South Phoenix.
The firm painted the home of an 80 year old widow who was excited to have her home painted a cream color with red trimming. The painting blitz had over 300 volunteers paint nine homes in South Phoenix, all belonging to senior citizens.
New City Phoenix, founded by Dave Bennett paints the homes of low income families as a way to show that one person can make a difference in the lives of those in need.
