Buckets of Love 2019

A&K Painting is providing school supplies as well as opportunity to local schools

A&K Painting will be delivering 150 – 5 gallon Paint buckets filled with school supplies to local area schools and community partners that work directly with local school districts. This program is one way that A&K loves to give back to the communities they serve.

The feedback from the program has been awesome. It’s my favorite of all A&K community services. It gives us an opportunity to not only give back to our community, but also to do our part in helping kids meet their potential by ensuring they each have the tools they need to perform well in school. It’s a wonderful program, and I’m proud of A&K for continuing the program each year.

About Buckets of Love

A&K Painting started buckets of love in 2011. Every year A&K Painting fills 5 gallon paint buckets with school supplies for local area schools. These buckets contain everything a student or classroom needs to be successful. Items like Pens, Pencils, Crayons, Glue, and more can be found in each bucket. The mission of Buckets of Love is to give students and schools in need every opportunity to be successful. A&K Painting believes it is important to invest in education and our future generations.

Who Receives the Buckets?

All of our buckets go to local area school districts in Mecklenburg, York, and Gaston Counties. We will also partner with Classroom Central who distributes buckets to other local schools in the area. A few buckets are also set aside for our employees to donate to area schools that hold a special place in their hearts – These buckets are then donated to these schools by them personally.

Where do the Buckets and Supplies Come From?

Every year A&K Partners with incredible vendors that make this program a success. This year all 150 of our buckets have been donated by Sherwin-Williams. Other vendors step in to help as well such as Sunbelt Rentals. Sunbelt Rentals has volunteered to help fill each buckets with crayons and other school supplies. A&K Painting would like to thank all of our employees and vendors that helped with this years Buckets of Love.
