Home Depot Service Campaign Bolsters Veteran Housing

The Home Depot has completed its fourth annual Celebration of Service campaign and celebrated a 2,500 home milestone, more than double the company’s original goal to transform 1,000 homes for veterans during a two-month effort, which began on September 11.

During the campaign, more than 13,000 Home Depot associates volunteered on their days off as a part of Team Depot, the company’s associate-led volunteer force, to improve veterans’ homes and housing facilities in nearly 500 cities across all 50 states.

In addition, The Home Depot Foundation is celebrating Veterans Day with the announcement of plans to match funds raised by the Stephen Siller Tunnel to Towers Foundation between today and December 31, 2014, up to $200,000. The match in donations will be used to help the Building for America’s Bravest program continue to build smart homes for catastrophically injured veterans, including double, triple and quadruple amputees. Donations can be made at www.ourbravest.org.
