Some people always want to make changes in their lives, but aren't always capable of doing it.
 
Zions Bank once a year tries to help those people, by giving them a home makeover.
 
"It's something that we in Idaho and Utah take pride in, to help beautify the community," said Troy Eppich, Zions Bank branch manager in Blackfoot. 
 
The bank's Paint-a-Thon goes on throughout the two states, painting houses and landscaping properties for people who may not be physically capable.
 
This year in Pocatello, Dorothy McEvoy's home took on a big transformation, going from beige, to a vibrant blue, which is something that represents what they're trying to do.
 
"This is the first one that's really changed color in the last four years that I've been a part of...it's like going to Disneyland right? Everybody has that dream, they want to change their house they want to change their appearance, and it certainly is on this home," said Eppich.
 
The project is in its 29th year of existence, and since its launch has painted almost 1200 homes in Idaho and Utah, donating $1.3 million to the cause.
