On a brisk spring morning, employees of Jaburg Wilk and their families participated in the New City Phoenix’s 2023 Spring Painting Blitz. Frequent supporters of this program, this is the eleventh home that Jaburg Wilk has painted in the eight years that they have been supporting The Barrio Nuevo Program. This is just the second time that they have been able to do this in-person event since the 2020 pandemic. They were very excited to paint the house to help renew this neighborhood.
