Paint Iowa Beautiful

Diamond Vogel and Keep Iowa Beautiful announced the grant awards for the 2021 Paint Iowa Beautiful program. The program provides free paint to a wide variety of public service projects throughout Iowa.

Doug Vogel, Vice-President of Marketing at Vogel Paint, says the governor will be signing a proclamation designating April as Keep Iowa Beautiful month.  He says Diamond Vogel will be awarding paint to 132 community projects, allowing the company to assist and work with many local volunteers that help build communities, making Iowa one of the best states in the nation to live. 

Kevin Techau, Executive Director of Keep Iowa Beautiful, says the Paint Iowa Beautiful program helps increase their assistance to neighborhoods and communities in improving the attractiveness and beauty of where we live.  He says these projects definitely improve the beauty of Iowa, its countryside and its communities.
