While we read through hundreds of nominations, we’ve selected a fantastic family with an incredible story of love and strength. With a fresh coat of paint, the Arizona Painting Company hopes to bring a fresh start to this loving family.
Introducing Michelle Quirk
On April 29th, the Quirk Family lost a husband and father very suddenly to a heart attack. Married to her high school sweetheart for almost 29 years, the unexpected passing of Michelle’s husband, Tom, has unveiled an overwhelming amount of responsibilities for her to take on. Not only was he an upstanding father, but Tom also took on doing work around the house, in the yard, on the family cars, and so much more. Even helping his in-laws whenever they needed.
Michelle Quirk, mother of three, used her strength and courage to nominate herself. Currently unable to afford the hefty project to paint her home and being pressured by her Homeowner’s Association during this difficult time, she decided to take a chance and seek help.
After hearing her story, Arizona Painting Company knew that Michelle and her family were right for the 2018 Paint It Forward. Joe Campbell, Owner of Arizona Painting Company, had the pleasure of contacting Michelle to let her know the good news. With excitement and gratitude, Michelle accepted the offer and Arizona Painting Company went to her home, completed a color consultation, and scheduled the exterior painting project for September 15, 2018!
