Sherwin-Williams Donates 150 Gallons of Paint to McCormick Place as Convention Center Becomes Emergency Hospital

Donation Part of National Effort to Supply Critical Products to Support Vital Health Care Facilities and Infrastructure



We are proud to have donated 150 gallons of paint to McCormick Place, the Chicago convention center that is transforming into an alternate care facility. In partnership with Walsh Construction, Brookdale Decorating Inc. and the United States Army Corps of Engineers, we also donated materials needed to paint the facility that is expected to serve 3,000 patients.


“Sherwin-Williams has a long history of giving back to the communities where we live and work. With more than 100 stores in the Chicagoland area, we are committed to supporting the city during this unprecedented health emergency,” said Josh Kumfer, District Manager at Sherwin-Williams.


Sherwin-Williams supplies critical products needed to create and maintain environments for vital health care facilities, manufacturing plants and other infrastructure. The Company also has donated hundreds of N95 masks to medical personnel in the greater Chicagoland area and will continue to identify and support additional locations in need.


To date, our company has donated more than 250,000 masks, gloves and lab coats to the heroic health care workers and emergency responders on the front lines across the United States. We also are beginning to manufacture hand sanitizer, which will be donated to those in need.
