BOISE -- An Army veteran living in Boise is enjoying a freshly painted home, thanks to some local volunteers. It's their way of giving back to a man who's given so much to our country.

Nicolas DeNinno served 15 months in Iraq in 2007. He was diagnosed with PTSD when he returned home. And this week, local volunteers spent a couple of days at his house, painting every room, to help make life a little easier for him.

It's part of Benjamin Moore's Color Care Across America. The company is going state to state to provide color makeovers for homes of wounded servicemen and women. His girls' room is now a bright, cheery pink.

DeNinno says it's great to feel so much support from the community.

Them coming in and doing the work, we're kind of on a tight budget so paying for paint and stuff like that. They've supplied all the paint. Painters have come out and volunteered and done a great job. I couldn't ask for anything else, said DeNinno.

Dan Hansen with ColorQuest Inc. provided painters for the project.

I was never able to serve, but this is a way for my company to give back because we've been blessed in so many ways, said Hansen.

This isn't the first time Benjamin Moore has given back to Boise community. Last year, they provided a makeover to the Boise Rescue Mission.
