We are excited to announce The Home Depot Foundation as one of our new partners of the Veterans Village – a community for our service men and women in Umatilla, Florida. Recently, the Home Depot Foundation awarded Habitat for Humanity’s Veterans Village a grant of $100,000 to support the building of homes for low-income Veterans. Kent Adcock, Habitat for Humanity’s CEO states “We are extremely grateful for the support of The Home Depot Foundation, they have been a long standing partner of Habitat for Humanity and do so much for the Veteran community across the nation.”
As a partner in the Veterans Village, The Home Depot Foundation will not only support the Veterans Village financially but also through volunteerism. Team Depot, a group of Home Depot associate volunteers, work to improve the homes and lives of U.S. military veterans and their families. We are excited to have the support of local Team Depot members who will be working at the Village over the next year. To kick off the partnership and start up the onsite building with Team Depot, both local store managers from Lady Lake and Leesburg are gathering Team Depot members for their first event on Veterans Day – Saturday, November 11th.
Below are a few photos from the first Team Depot project in Coleman, Florida. They did an amazing job!
