Habitat for Humanity receives Home Depot grant

MEDIA RELEASE

Through its Community Impact Grants Program, The Home Depot Foundation has awarded $5,000 to Habitat for Humanity West Hawaii. The donation will be used for their upcoming projects to serve veterans.

“The Home Depot Foundation’s generous donation will help with upcoming repair work and new home construction for veterans in West Hawaii,” said Patrick Hurney, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity West Hawaii. “It is through these type of partnerships that we are able to assist our local veterans.”

The Home Depot Foundation’s Community Impact Grants Program supports the work that local nonprofit veteran organizations are doing to improve the lives of veterans and their families.

“The Home Depot Foundation is committed to ensuring that every veteran has a safe place to call home,” said Kelly Caffarelli, President of The Home Depot Foundation. “We are proud to work with Habitat for Humanity West Hawaii in our efforts to give back to those men and women who have so bravely served our country.”

Habitat for Humanity West Hawaii is a locally run affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International, a nonprofit, ecumenical Christian housing organization. Habitat for Humanity works in partnership with people in need to build and renovate decent, affordable housing.

The Home Depot Foundation is dedicated to improving the homes of U.S. military veterans through financial and volunteer resources to help nonprofit organizations. The Foundation has committed $80 million to these efforts over five years.

Through Team Depot, the company’s associate-led volunteer program, thousands of Home Depot associates volunteer their time and talents to positively transform neighborhoods and perform basic repairs and modifications to homes and facilities serving veterans with critical housing needs.

Since its formation in 2002, The Home Depot Foundation has granted more than $340 million to nonprofit organizations improving homes and lives in local communities.
