The Home Depot Foundation has committed up to $250,000 in response to the continued earthquake activity in Puerto Rico.
The foundation said it is working alongside its national nonprofit partners including American Red Cross, Convoy of Hope, Operation Blessing, Team Rubicon and All Hands and Hearts to assess need, distribute emergency supplies and meals and provide individual care. Emergency supplies include water, tarps, mosquito nets, first aid kits, generators and more.
“Our hearts go out to our associates, customers and communities affected by the ongoing earthquake activity in Puerto Rico,” said Shannon Gerber, executive director of The Home Depot Foundation. “We have been engaged in long-term recovery efforts in Puerto Rico since Hurricane Maria in 2017 and will continue to work closely with our nonprofit partners to provide relief for communities impacted by the earthquakes.”
The Homer Fund, Home Depot’s employee assistance program, has also been actively processing grants for affected associates in Puerto Rico.
