It takes teamwork, appreciation and encouragement to make the world a more beautiful place
It takes understanding, drive, and a positive perspective to make the world a more beautiful place.

COLORFUL COMMUNITIES in Huntsville revitalizes historic living musuem


PPG recently completed a COLORFUL COMMUNITIES™ Project in Huntsville, AL that helped to renovate and beautify Constitution Hall at Alabama Constitution Village, which is considered to be the birthplace of Alabama. More than 50 volunteers, including PPG employees and family from PPG’s Aerospace, Architectural and Automotive Coatings facilities joined team members from PPG customer Toyota Motor Manufacturing Alabama, EarlyWorks Family of Museums and  Mayor Tommy Battle to spend the day painting, gardening and landscaping.

PPG also provided $61,000 and 250 gallons of SEAL GRIP® universal alkyd primer and color-matched FORTIS® 450 exterior paint to restore the exterior aesthetic of Constitution Hall. When the project is completed in June, PPG employees will volunteer again at the site, serving as docents, activity leaders and community open-house hosts during a special “PPG Week” of events.
