By | TruLine Giving Back

The world would be a much better place if we all could “pay it forward” at some point.

TruLine Painting Has Raised Over $2,000 for ATPF

Curtis Gabhart, President of TruLine Painting, joined the telethon on #GivingTuesday to help Autism Tree Project Foundation (ATPF) raise $100,000 by midnight on Christmas Eve to sustain the 20+ free programs and services provided by ATPF to kids and families impacted by autism

Founded in 2003, Autism Tree Project Foundation (ATPF) is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to improving communities in San Diego County and The Bay Area by assisting with Education, Advocacy, Early Intervention Preschool Screening, Research and Mentoring for families impacted by autism.

TruLine Painting also sponsored a Holiday Party for a cause for the benefit of ATPF and raised funds and collected Toy Donations for ATPF’s 11th Annual Winter Wonderland.

Thank you to everyone who came and supported our cause. Your donations will make a huge impact on many children.

Care Packages for the Homeless

Curtis Gabhart, President of TruLine Painting and Gabhart Investments organized an event on San Diego’s Rent Control and raised over $1,000 with the proceeds to be used to purchase care packages for the homeless people. On Christmas Day, Curtis Gabhart will be handing these care packages to the homeless people in San Diego.

We are still in need of small packs of basic necessities such as warm socks, toothbrush, toothpaste, snack bars, etc. These care packages won’t solve homelessness but they will let someone know that they are cared for on that day.

If you would like to donate or be involved, please contact us at 619-663-5878.

TruLine Painting Pays It Forward by Donating a Car

March 1st, 2019

It’s always been my belief that the world would be a much better place if we all could “pay it forward” at some point. Well, when I heard the news about my friend Steve Jepson’s recent hardships, I knew it was my time to “pay it forward.”

In December 2017, Steve was diagnosed with severe kidney failure and has been undergoing multiple treatments of dialysis each week. Because of his rigorous treatment regimen, Steve, a local real estate professional, has been unable to work. He is a devoted father to his 9-year old son, Steven, who is mid-spectrum autistic. Raising a child who has autism certainly comes with its challenges. Steven is not yet potty trained and requires special care throughout the day. To further complicate the situation, Steve’s car recently stopped working which has required him to rely upon medical transportation to get to and from his dialysis treatments.

When I reached out to see how I could help Steve, I approached him with the idea of setting up a GoFundMe page. The idea was to help raise some funds to get him a new car and get him back on his feet. What he didn’t know was that I was planning to give him a car in addition to setting up the GoFundMe page.

My only request from Steve was that once he got back on his feet, that he too would “pay it forward” by helping TruLine Painting in our efforts to raise funds for the Autism Tree Project Foundation (ATPF) and our homeless outreach campaign. ATPF is a local organization dedicated to improving communities in San Diego County by assisting with education, advocacy, research and mentoring for families impacted by autism. ATPF has helped thousands of family’s including Steve’s which makes this situation that much more special.

Needless to say, Steve was 100% on board with our idea. His reaction when he received the car was priceless – he immediately was thinking about how he too could “pay it forward.” That’s the beauty of paying it forward. One small act of kindness can create a snowball effect that will continue to improve the community. I hope that we can help Steve get back on his feet and back to doing what he loves.
