FrogTape® Brand Painter's Tape Shows Love to Local Elementary School

Brand Will Donate $10,000 and Partner With DIY Celebrities for the Love for the Lunchroom Program at Cleveland-Area Elementary School

AVON, OH--(Marketwired - Nov 13, 2013) -  For years, FrogTape® brand painter's tape has been helping DIYers make over rooms in their homes. Now, FrogTape is excited to give back to the local Northeast Ohio community with its inaugural Love for the Lunchroom cafeteria makeover program. As part of the event, Benjamin Franklin Elementary School located in Cleveland, Ohio will receive a lunchroom makeover valued at $10,000. The makeover will take place January 17-20, with the new lunchroom being unveiled on Tuesday, January 21, when students, faculty and staff return to the building following the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday weekend.

"Our company realizes the effect that creativity and inspiration can bring to a community," said Bill Kahl, executive vice president of marketing, ShurTech Brands, LLC. "We are honored to enter into this partnership with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District by giving back to a school in need and creating a space for students to interact and enjoy their lunches on a daily basis. But we're even more excited to create an event that will engage parents, teachers and students, alike."

To transform the school cafeteria, FrogTape will partner with popular designer and television personality Taniya Nayak and construction manager Tom Bury. By combining FrogTape brand's unique products, Taniya's style expertise and Tom's construction know-how, the Love for the Lunchroom program will embrace creativity and celebrate the magical effect a little imagination and hard work can have on a community.

FrogTape is the only painter's tape treated with patented PaintBlock® Technology. PaintBlock reacts with latex paint and instantly forms a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, creating crisp lines and helps prevent paint bleed. There are a number of tapes available within the popular family of FrogTape products, including FrogTape Textured Surface, FrogTape Multi-Surface, FrogTape Delicate Surface and FrogTape Shape Tape™, the brand's first painter's tape cut into unique patterns that allows homeowners to quickly and easily transform a space with paint.
