Our goal is to ensure every one of our neighbors has a happy, healthy place to call home. Together, let’s make our communities the best they can be.

Painting a Better Tomorrow

Changing the world one brushstroke at a time

Painting a Better Tomorrow, or PBT, is a one-day event that brings MBAKS members and community volunteers together to paint a local service organization’s facility. Frequently, the first maintenance item to be removed off an operational budget is painting, so many of our recipients have gone years without this much-needed improvement.

Since 2003, we have painted hundreds of thousands of square feet for area service organizations. Past recipients include nonprofits working to eliminate poverty, special education programs, and more, across King and Snohomish counties.
