As a record number of tornadoes and flooding continue to affect the Midwest and neighboring states, The Home Depot is supporting clean-up and relief efforts, including a commitment of up to $250,000 by The Home Depot Foundation.
The Home Depot Foundation is working with nonprofit partners including Team Rubicon, Convoy of Hope, Operation Blessing, All Hands and Hearts and ToolBank Disaster Service.
Home Depot stores, along with The Home Depot Foundation, have sent emergency water and storm clean-up supplies to Kansas City, KS, and Jefferson City, MO, while activating warehouses for distribution of additional supplies in Tulsa, OK, and Dayton, OH, in partnership with Convoy of Hope. To date, the company has sent more than 100 truckloads of essential products to aid in cleanup of the affected communities.
“Our thoughts are with everyone who has been impacted by these severe storms,” said Shannon Gerber, executive director of The Home Depot Foundation. “We will continue to work closely with our nonprofit partners to assess the needs of the impacted communities. In addition to financial support, our Team Depot associate volunteers will continue to work alongside these organizations to offer support.”
