An exciting program is launching today, The Home Depot Foundation and The Home Depot store associates are deploying a two-month community outreach initiative, Celebration of Service 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.

Over the next four months, the team will be partnering with The Home Depot as a part of The Home Depot Celebration of Service Blog Network! As part of this network, we 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.  This year an additional $50 million has been pledged! 

Stay tuned for more information and exciting projects coming up!
