We love our community

Columbia, Missouri has been our home since 1925 and we love investing in the community that built us.

JPD Loves Teachers Rug Remnant Giveaway


Each year we give away rug remnants to local teachers so they can create a cozy space for kids to gather in their classrooms.

Painting the Mizzou “M”


Ever wonder how the rock M at Faurot Field stays so white?

Johnston Paint & Decorating supplies paint to the incoming Mizzou class each year for this time-honored tradition. It's a fun way to keep a ritual alive and keep a local university looking polished!

Paint supplies and Johnston gift certificates make great raffle items for school fundraisers.

If you've got an event coming up, ask us about donating!

“Save a Rack” Cancer Benefit

We're proud to sponsor the Save a Rack Cancer Benefit every year.

Save a Rack is an event started by a paint contractor and customer of Johnston's. Funds raised in this annual event offset the cost of mammograms at Ellis Fischel Cancer Center for those in need.

Contractor Appreciation BBQ

Each year we hold two special barbecues for our contractors.

Contractors can meet with some of our top vendors, get free product samples, learn about new products, and register for giveaways. We cook burgers and brats in the spring or steak and chicken in the fall for all of our contractors.

Chairs & Chests for Children

Chairs and Chests for Children is a yearly live auction of furniture hand painted and decorated by local artists.

All proceeds from our yearly Chairs & Chests for Children auction benefit the Mary Lee Johnston Community Learning Center.
