Behr Attends WISEPlace Groundbreaking
In June, members of the Behr Paint team proudly attended the groundbreaking ceremony for their philanthropy partner and Santa Ana, CA, neighbor WISEPlace. This historical landmark renovation and expansion building project will provide its 47 women residents with both permanent supportive housing and wrap-around services including private counseling, financial empowerment learning labs, community gardens and more. Behr will support the project by donating all the interior and exterior paint.
