PPG completes first Colorful Communities charitable-giving project in Asia

12 August 2015

PPG Industries has announced the completion of its first Colorful Communities charitable-giving project in Asia, with the restoration of a mural at a child-care centre in Busan, South Korea. The Colorful Communities programme, which the company launched in May, incorporates PPG employee volunteers, products and charitable giving to bring colour and vitality to communities where the company operates around the world. The programme expands PPG’s investment in its communities by committing an additional US$10M over 10yrs in Colorful Communities projects.
The Busan project brought together about 100 volunteers – employees of PPG’s local manufacturing facility and their family members – to restore a mural at a local co-operative child-care centre using PPG paint products. In addition to creating a more positive and pleasant environment for those who use the facility through this effort, PPG also awarded a US$20,000 Colorful Communities grant to the Saha-gu social welfare centre, an organisation dedicated to promoting the well-being of citizens in the ‘Gamchun’ cultural community in South Korea. The community is known for the murals painted in its alleys.
