On a chilly November morning, more than twenty employees of Jaburg Wilk and their families participated in the New City Phoenix’s 2022 Fall Painting Blitz. Frequent supporters of this program, this is the tenth home that Jaburg Wilk has painted in the seven years that they have been supporting The Barrio Nuevo Program. It is the first time that they have been able to do this in-person event since the 2020 pandemic and they were very excited to paint the house of Grandma Beverly.
