Our lasting impact starts with the people we serve

Impact

Students celebrate during a COLORFUL COMMUNITIES® project in Vietnam

Every can of paint. Every dollar donated. Every employee volunteer hour. It all matters for the singular purpose of creating vibrant, bright futures for our neighbors around the world.

Yet when we think about our impact, we also count students' smiles when they see their monochromatic classroom come alive with brightness for the first time. We share in a mother’s joy when a women’s shelter transforms into a cheerful, lively home for her child. We join in the awe of a neighbors' meeting at a redesigned playground. We make meaningful change with each opportunity to inspire joy and brightness in the lives of others.

Global Leaders Transform a School

A Colorful Communities project brought together more than 100 of PPG’s top global leaders, who spent a portion of their annual global leadership meeting making a difference in the lives of students and faculty at Richmond Heights Middle School in Miami, Florida. Thanks to their efforts, fresh and inviting colors and uplifting murals now fill the newly painted cafeteria, STEM laboratories and hallways throughout the school.

The impact that this project will have on our school goes well beyond a fresh coat of paint, and will create a positive and nurturing atmosphere for our students for years to come.
