The Home Depot Foundation Increases Pledge to Half Billion For Veterans
The Home Depot, Inc. (HD) is the world’s largest home improvement retailer with retail stores all across North America. The Home Depot sells building materials and home improvement products, as well as lawn and garden supplies, and provides installation, home maintenance, and professional service programs.
The Home Depot Foundation recently announced that it will it expand its commitment to a half-billion dollars to veteran causes by the year of 2025. This expansion comes as a result of company volunteers or “Team Depot” completing over 100,000 volunteer hours throughout the Foundation’s seven-week Celebration of Service Campaign.
Thanks to multiple partnerships with both national and local nonprofits, the foundation was able to complete its quarter-billion dollar commitment two years earlier than projected. As a direct result, over 40,000 veterans’ homes and facilities received improvements since the commitment of the original pledge.
Organizations that the Foundation continues to work with include Volunteers of American, Semper Fi Fund, and Gary Sinise Foundation, along with many others. They work to end veteran homelessness, serve critically wounded veterans, and make important home improvement repairs for senior veterans.
Shannon Gerber, executive director at The Home Depot Foundation stated, “Giving back to our nation’s heroes is a part of our DNA at The Home Depot. We’re proud to partner with the best nonprofits in the nation to solve veteran issues and serve our servicemen and women who dedicated their lives to our country and sacrificed so much.”
