{celebration of service} home depot

I love Home Depot, and I'm SO excited to announce my partnership with them, and the opportunity to be a part of their Celebration of Service!


Today, The Home Depot store associates and The Home Depot Foundation are embarking on a two-month community outreach initiative to transform the homes and lives of veterans across the country. From September 6 to Veterans Day in November, store associate volunteers will complete hundreds of service projects – from making mobility modifications to the homes of injured veterans to renovating shelters for homeless veterans. Volunteer projects also will include energy efficient upgrades to homes of individual veterans and facilities that serve them to help reduce utility bills.


Celebration of Service Blog Network! As part of this network, I will be talking about the challenges veterans face in our communities, participating in local service projects and events and exploring the steps that we can all take to reduce our home operating costs.

Since its formation in 2002, The Home Depot Foundation has granted more than $300 million to nonprofit organizations improving homes and lives in local communities.


When I read through the press release, and the Home Depot Foundation website,  I was overcome with emotion, and very touched by the huge contribution being made by The Home Depot, their employees, and all the volunteers who make this project possible. I am so honored to be a part of it, and grateful for the opportunity to give back to those who have sacrificed so much for our country.


I will keep you updated, and I can't wait to tell you all about my experiences as I travel and participate in a few of the service projects.

Very cool! My husband is a veteran and full-time member of the military. We are at The Home Depot constantly and they are great. Their military discount has saved us so much money! We really appreciate all they do to help veterans all over the country.

I boycott Home Depot because they support homosexual causes while they deny Christian employees the right to wear Christian shirts or pins. They outright reject Christianity while they promote homosexual perversion. I wouldn't spend a dime there.
