PITTSBURGH – OLYMPIC® Paints, a brand of PPG Architectural Coatings, presented Operation Troop Appreciation with a $25,000 gift this holiday season. Operation Troop Appreciation is a Pittsburgh-based nonprofit organization that provides services and supplies to military service members and veterans.
Olympic Paints raised the donation dollars through the sale of Olympic ONE® interior paint. In November, the paint brand launched a Veteran’s Day campaign in which $1 for every gallon sold would be donated to a veteran’s charity.
A volunteer-based organization, Operation Troop Appreciation works to provide active and veteran members of the Armed Forces with items that contribute to their morale and well-being. The group organizes dozens of projects each year to send wish-list items to military units, such as clothing, sports equipment, music equipment, entertainment devices, tools, exercise gear and more.
