Flat Rock-Hawcreek school classrooms will be brightened up by a grant from True Value Foundation announced recently by Major's True Value. 

The schools will be provided with 30 gallons of donated paint, through the foundation's Painting A Brighter Future program. More than 1,600 schools have received the grants since the program started in 2009. 

Major's True Value nominated FRHC Schools for the grant. Spencer Gross, owner of Major's True Value is delivering the asthma and allergy friendly paint to the schools. Hope Elementary and Hauser High School will be using the paint to give their classrooms a much-needed makeover during the summer break. 

“Through True Value Foundation’s Painting a Brighter Future program, we’re able to help FRHC Schools and give back to the community we love to serve,” said Grosse. “The donation will not only save the school money, but more importantly will create an environment that fosters learning, inspires creativity and instills community pride.” 

According to an announcement by Gross, True Value’s EasyCare Ultra Premium Acrylic Latex paint has earned the asthma and allergy friendly®  Certification Mark. The program performs physical and chemical testing on products to ensure they minimize irritants and pollutants in the air and reduce potential exposure to allergens. The asthma & allergy friendly® Certification Mark is awarded only to products that reduce potential exposure to asthma and allergy triggers. 

True Value Foundation unites retailers in helping improve the lives of children in the communities True Value serves. The foundation advocates for youth and serves as a catalyst to provide tools and resources to help youth realize their dreams and achieve their potential. We encourage our partners to get involved and give back through volunteerism, mentor-ship, community improvements, and raising funds.
