"It thrills my heart to work in Waukegan with listeners and friends there!" stated Delilah. "A city so rich in history with a beautiful downtown that's welcoming art galleries and restaurants -- that's a place I want to be, to help in our way and bring this gift to the city!"
Paint the Town is a community project and promotion created by Delilah to inspire consumers and listeners of her radio program to invest time and energy in their respective hometowns and neighborhoods and instill pride in the places they call home. Over the last two years, Delilah has brought the Paint the Town project to two of these cities and worked locally to find hundreds of community area volunteers to paint the exteriors of many buildings and create an ongoing sense of community spirit and pride. The city of Waukegan was selected from a group of identified cities because of its civic pride and the physical characteristics that make the project possible.
