The project brought together more than 20 PPG volunteers, who spent the
day revitalizing school's library and cafetorium. PPG provided 40
gallons of PPG PAINTS™ MANOR HALL® interior paint.

Lorenzo De Zavala Elementary School has served as an institution in the
community, providing a safe, welcoming and secure environment where all
students gain the behavioral and academic skills necessary to graduate
from high school to be college and career ready.

"This gift will help us inspire our students," said Melissa Gonzalez,
principal at Lorenzo De Zavala Elementary School. "We cannot wait for
our students to return to school and see the new beauty given to our
building!"

Volunteers painted the facility's library and cafetorium in a color
palette of PPG Paints Lime Sorbet (PPG1225-4), Melon Pink
(PPG1195-3) and Everglade Mist (PPG1150-3). These colors were chosen to
create bright and colorful learning environments throughout the school.

"PPG is proud to support Lorenzo De Zavala Elementary School's mission
by creating a positive impact on the space where students can learn and
grow," said Okey Maduka, PPG sales manager, architectural coatings. "We
know color plays a powerful role in revitalizing a space, and we hope
the PPG Paints products will transform the way students feel
about their surroundings."

Notable Dallas community members joined the day's activities, including
Councilmember Omar Narvaez's Assistant, Laura Cadena, who issued a
special proclamation to commemorate the occasion, making July 26, 2018
"PPG Colorful Communities Day."

PPG recently invested approximately $9 million to open 14 stores in the
Dallas-Fort Worth area, bringing the total to nearly 40 PPG PAINTS™
stores in the region. PPG's architectural coatings business employs
nearly 900 people in Texas, and last month PPG announced plans for a new
distribution center in Flower Mound, Texas. The new facility will be the
largest distribution center for architectural paints and coatings in
PPG's U.S. and Canada network. Recently, PPG partnered with the Regional
Hispanic Contractors Association to support the advancement and economic
growth of Hispanic contractors in Texas. PPG brand paints are also
available at local independent dealers and THE HOME DEPOT® locations.

The Colorful Communities program, PPG's signature initiative for
supporting communities, aims to protect and beautify the neighborhoods
where PPG operates around the world. Through the Colorful Communities program,
PPG's committed volunteers contribute their time and PPG paint products
to help transform community assets – from painting classrooms, to
bringing color to a maternity ward and redesigning a playground. Since
2015, PPG has completed more than 150 Colorful Communities
projects, impacting more than 4.5 million people in 25 countries.
