Help Paint Sanford Red (Or Blue Or Green)

Great news -- Sanford has been chosen to compete in "Main Street Matters," an international contest to win free paint and paint services for three blocks.

Sanford was chosen along with 99 other cities for the contest, which is co-hosted by Benjamin Moore and Brad Pitt's Make It Right foundation. If we win, the paint and services will be used in downtown Sanford.

Even better: Not only will downtown Sanford benefit from winning, but so will area businesses. Benjamin Moore will source its paint from the local Benjamin Moore store and it will hire local contractors and businesses to provide the paint services.

Read more about the competition and its impact in Sunday's Sanford Herald.

How To Vote

To vote, go to the Main Street Matters website and click on NC, then Sanford, and then the paint bucket that appears.

People can vote once per day from each of their “machines” (computer, iPad, iPhone, Android, etc).

Spread the word: Encourage your social networks to get in on the voting. You can share this photo with your Facebook, Twitter, and other networks.

To win, Sanford must receive enough votes to place it in the top 20. Voting has already begun and runs through June 20.
