Home Depot Associates appeared on July 12 at a new Threshold facility under renovation. With military organization, the Home Depot team brought along 40 volunteers from Victoria, Duncan and Vancouver to do a “painting-blitz.”  The new house, located in Oak Bay (Victoria)  is over 6000 square feet with 8 self-contained living units, a commercial size kitchen and common areas.

These amazing volunteers painted all the rooms in just under 5 hours!  Organized by Cameron Rundell and Brendon Campbell with the help of Deanne Pickering, Jason Handley  and “Captain Morgan,” this amazing team were organized into sma

ller groups to “blitz” rooms designated by color and size. A tent was set up outside with brushes, rollers, drop-sheets and ladders.  Once into it, the flurry of slapping brushes and the swishing of paint rollers was frenetic.  Some of the team had already accomplished the preparation work and staked out the rooms that need more “care.”  The atmosphere

was light and energetic.  By 1:00pm, the team settled into a pizza lunch in the adjacent church hall.
