Sailing for a Cause: Garrett Painting Participates in Annual Float Your Boat Race

On April 27, 2024, Garrett Painting participated in Float Your Boat, an annual cardboard boat race fundraiser to support The Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri. Teams raced one-of-a-kind boats across the Bass Pro Shops Lake in Columbia while hundreds of attendees cheered them on.

Proceeds from the event will help feed neighbors in the food bank’s 32-acre service area. Due to the food bank’s bulk purchasing power, a $25 donation can help provide at least 100 meals to those in need.

Garrett Painting is proud to support The Food Bank for Central & Northeast Missouri and its mission to alleviate hunger in the community. Donate to The Food Bank.
