For the last 27 years, volunteers from the Sioux Empire have given of their time and talents to participate in the "Brush Up Sioux Falls" PAINT-A-THON.  Teams are made up of volunteers from all walks of life.  They pitch in to touch the hearts of the elderly and disabled homeowners in our community by preparing and painting  homes at no charge to the homeowner.

Every year we encounter seniors in need who are no long able to maintain the exterior of their home.  Volunteer teams are needed to help seniors maintain the outside of their home.  Please consider partnering with The Salvation Army and filling this need for seniors and disabled persons in our community. 

Below you'll find a Team Registration form that outlines the requirements of volunteer teams and allows you to specifically the type of house painting project your group would like to work on. 

The painting of the homes can be completed through the summer months.  We like to have all the homes completed by the second week of September.

The appreciation of the homeowners is truly heart felt.  They often worry about maintaining the appearance of their home but know there just isn't money to pay for the needed painting.  Our partnership with Norberg Paints, Xcel Energy and volunteer teams make it possible to alleviate this worry for those in need.

If you would like to sign up a team or have any questions, please contact Emily Wehde, Senior Program Coordinator at 605-338-6649 ext. 312 or
