Where Would You Rather Be?

Graffiti affects entire communities.  It invites more crime, makes residents feel unsafe and lowers property values.

“I take pride in running a quality business and I want that to show. Graffiti takes away from our community which is why it makes such a difference when Brightside’s team removes graffiti from homes and businesses in our area.”  –Jackie Robinson, owner of Constantly Growing Day Care

Brightside’s Graffiti Eradication Team Stats:

  • A combined 120 years’ experience restoring property and neighborhoods
  • Removed graffiti from more than 150,000 vandalized properties since 1992
  • Cleaned over 360,000 square feet of vandalized surfaces in 2017 alone – that’s more than the size of 7 football fields!

Graffiti may never go away, but your gift can help keep it at bay!  Do you part to keep our city clean by donating to Brightside and support the Brightside’s Graffiti Removal Program.
