Giving Back to Our Communities
Rodda Paint and its employees have been active members of their communities all over the Pacific Northwest since 1932. Neighborhoods surrounding Rodda stores and next to where we live have benefited from donations and discount programs that help enhance our quality of life. As a local manufacturer with strong family ties, Rodda understands the need for charity and we are happy to support our local communities.
For more than four decades, once a year, Rodda employees pool their efforts and give back to their communities through their donations to United Way. Rodda has a contribution matching policy for adding to the donations directed by the individual employee.
Home Builders Foundation & Paint a Better Tomorrow
A program dear to our hearts which was established through the Home Builders Association to identify, qualify and complete painting projects. These projects focus on low income transitional housing including some “safe houses” that are in need of a face lift. Administered through an application and volunteer system, multiple projects are selected each year with team captains organizing the volunteer efforts at each location. Along with PABT, the Foundation takes on projects in the community to better transitional housing facilities, Rodda has been a major contributor to these projects since their inception.
Paint the Town Clean
Identifying a growing trend in our local communities, Rodda partnered with the City of Portland in a campaign to curb Graffiti by holding a once a year ‘paint out’ to clean up local areas. While successful as a once a year program for a few years the efforts and resources needed to be expanded in scope and the system simplified for access by businesses looking for help with their projects. Out of this a building owner Graffiti discount system was born.
Rodda is involved in many other projects and donations that are too numerous to list. If you are interested in other events or for more information, please fill out and submit a donation request form.
