Catholic Academy of West Buffalo will receive 40 gallons of paint to refresh its learning environment. Catholic Academy was selected as the winner of a paint grant through Dibble True Value's partnership with True Value Foundation's "Painting a Brighter Future" program. The grant helps to renew an atmosphere that sets a positive tone for educators to teach and children to learn.
Partnering with True Value Foundation, Dibble's notified local neighborhood schools of the grant last fall and encouraged applications. Dibble True Value is a family business. Owner Tenso Japadjief , his wife Jane and son Daniel all work at the West Ferry St. store in Buffalo.
Catholic Academy will use the paint to repaint classrooms and refresh hallways in the school. The project is expected to be completed in time for the September start of school.
"This gives us a marvelous opportunity to brighten up our classrooms, just in time for the new school year. Thank you True Value," said Sister Gail Glenn, SSJ, principal at Catholic Academy.
