The auction was held along with the 7th Annual Koats 4 Kids Fundraising Party on Friday, October 4th at the Mining Exchange Hotel. It was a fabulous party, and this year over 500 new winter coats for the students at Centennial Elementary in Harrison School District 2 were collected. It's a whole lot easier to learn when you're safe and warm and all the kids at the school will be taken care of with coats! Check out the piles of coats that were collected! See the chairs that we painted.

Memory Boxes

PPDP works closely with the community by participating in the Memory Box program administered by Tolefriends. This is a volunteer program whereby boxes are painted and provided to families of babies that pass away in a hospital. The box is given to the parents of the child so they can leave the hospital with their child's belongings in a nice container. The boxes are then filled with mementos of the child. More information can be obtained about this program at http://memoryboxes.org/.

Butterfly Auction

PPDP participated for two years in the Butterfly Auction run by the Rotary Club of Colorado Springs where money is raised for arts programs to be given to schools within District 11 school district. More information can be obtained about this program at http://artsandfriends.org

Chapter photographs of past butterflies are available by clicking the chapter photos link.


Habitat for Humanity

PPDP has worked with Habitat for Humanity as well by decoratively painting furniture on display in homes built by Habitat for Humanity. This is a newer community service project for us and we are excited to continue on with it. More information can be obtained about this program at http://www.habitat.org/


As you can see Pikes Peak Decorative Painters enjoys giving back to our community. We also contribute to the community be doing random service projects. For example, painting items to be auctioned off by the policemen's wives or painting a toy box for the police station where our meetings are held.
