|Team Depot at HVAF
Clad in orange T-shirts 112 volunteers from Home Depot gave up a day off in July to honor veterans at HVAF of Indiana. The group completed a major renovation project and installed backsplashes in each kitchen at Manchester Apartments. The 51-room apartment building, which is one of two of HVAF co-ed properties, was in need of updating.
Not only did the Home Depot employees give up a day off from work to volunteer at HVAF of Indiana, the company also funded the project. This project was part of a 10-thousand dollar grant in which the Home Depot provided all the materials and labor.
“One of the ways that we live our core values at Home Depot is giving back to the community,” says Tony Davis, Specialty Assistant Store Manager (store #2014). “Being a veteran of the US Army gives me a sense of pride to represent those who have served our country.”
“Home Depot has committed $80 million to address the problem of veteran homelessness, to be spent over the next three years,”says Home Depot District Manager Bob Blake. “We are happy to be at HVAF where work is needed to be done to improve the quality of life for these veterans.”
