The Home Depot Foundation Offers Grant and Benefits Veteran
Korean War Veteran Cliff Craig has been married to his wife, Pat, for 60 years. He is legally blind and she is his full-time caregiver. After years of living in their home, their appliances were not working, the flooring was not stable and the home was in need of a fresh coat of paint. Work included a bathroom renovation, replacing a broken storm window, installing paneling in several rooms, installing a new outdoor wheelchair ramp, and installing a flagpole to proudly fly our nation’s colors.
On October 3, 65 volunteers from The Home Depot stores partnered with HVAF to transform and update the home of Veteran Cliff Craig, as well as its Warman facility. At Warman, every interior wall got re-painted as well as enclosure of the back porches of units #202 and #204.
HVAF Board Member and District Manager of The Home Depot, Bob Blake, is grateful to give back. “Not only are we proud to have the opportunity to refurbish the homes and facilities where they live and receive services, but also to say ‘thank you’ for their many sacrifices.”
The Home Depot Foundation’s COO, Fred Wacker, was on hand for the announcement.
Charles Haenlein, President & CEO of HVAF said, “We are thrilled and want to express our gratitude to The Home Depot Foundation for providing us with this grant. Warman is in need of facility improvements and the funds, coupled with Team Depot’s manpower, will help tremendously.” Before photo of kitchen
