PATCH Foundation

The International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT) recently announced its pledge of $500,000 to the PATCH (Painters and Allied Trades for Children’s Hope) Foundation, an IUPAT-created organization to aid North American children.

The foundation’s first event will be a collection day on International Literacy Day, Sept. 8. The proceeds will go toward the mission of ensuring literacy for North American children.
