E very year, MBAKS' Painting a Better Tomorrow (PBT) brings together members, community volunteers, and staff to paint a local nonprofit's facility. When budgets are tight, repaints are often the first thing to go—but for organizations supporting families in need, a hospitable service center is essential. Since the program began in 2003, PBT volunteers have painted hundreds of thousands of square feet for deserving nonprofits working to eliminate poverty, offering special education programs, and providing many other essential services across King and Snohomish counties.
