Mountain America Supports Veteran, Disabled, and Elderly Neighbors in Idaho

Twenty-five homes across the Treasure Valley received a much-needed fresh coat of paint last weekend, thanks in part to a $10,000 contribution from Mountain America.

The credit union was the platinum sponsor for NeighborWorks Boise’s 39th Annual Paint the Town event, a project that helps disabled, elderly, and veteran neighbors who are unable to paint their homes due to physical or financial constraints.

“Community revitalization does not happen without partners like Mountain America Credit Union and support from kindhearted neighbors,” said Bud Compher, CEO of NeighborWorks Boise. “We love being able to continue helping as many families as we can. Our end goal is to provide safe, stable, and affordable housing in the Treasure Valley. Paint the Town helps deserving neighbors stay in their homes and brings together the community for an important cause.”

NeighborWorks Boise hosted an official kickoff party for volunteers to pick up supplies June 5, and on Saturday, June 12, teams of volunteers came together to paint 25 homes and complete other repair work as needed. Since its inception in 1982, more than 3,000 homes have been revitalized through Paint the Town.

“Community events like Paint the Town help make the Treasure Valley an even more amazing place to live,” says Amy Moser, Chief Lending Officer at Mountain America. “We are proud to support NeighborWorks Boise and want to thank all the volunteers giving their time and energy to put a fresh coat of paint on the homes of neighbors in need.”
