PPG recently announced the completion of a colorful communities™ project in Soborg, Denmark, that helped to revitalize and add shelter and seating to the parkour area of the City’s Arena, an outdoor activity space adjacent to the Hoje Gladsaxe housing project. The Colorful Communities program reportedly provides PPG employees and products along with financial contributions to bring color and vitality to communities where the company operates around the world.
The project brought together more than 30 volunteers who are employees at PPG’s nearby architectural coatings, automotive refinish, and protective and marine coatings operations in Soborg to spend two days revitalizing the parkour area. PPG provided more than $18,500 for the project, as well as about 150 liters of DYRUP® Façade Extra paint products in 10 colors.
“From the beginning, we were sure that revitalizing an area of Hoje Gladsaxe was right for this project–the residents are so close to our site, they are actually our neighbors,” said Peter Soerensen, general manager, architectural coatings, Denmark. “We hope this is the beginning of close cooperation on more community initiatives. Already we are planning an educational day at our PPG site for local school students.”
