August 2, 2016 — Volunteers from a local company worked together Saturday to celebrate a Roseville woman's birthday in a special way.

Educational Credit Management Corporation employees and other community members participated in Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches' Paint-a-Thon event at the home of Kristin Anderson, who turned 79.

The 30 volunteers prepped and painted the home while also completing minor touch-ups.

The event celebrated Anderson's 79th birthday. She says the event and those helping made her feel "incredibly cared for."

Paint-a-Thon events help low-income seniors and people with disabilities live independently in their homes. Each summer, volunteers paint the outside of homes in Hennepin and Ramsey counties for those who can't paint them themselves and can't afford to hire help.
