Home Depot Helps Veterans

Home Depot Helps Veterans

Home Depot has gone above and beyond to help disabled veterans. In addition to donating up to a million dollars to help local organizations remodel homes for handicap accessibility, thousands of teammates have joined forces with these organizations to help in the rebuilding process.

For two months, Home Depot workers have been remodeling and modifying homes for disabled veterans in honor of Veteran’s day on Nov. 11. Nearly 5,000 teammates have joined local organizations across America to help build ramps and make modifications to enable disabled veterans to move around their homes with ease.

“Celebration of Service” Campaign

The extensive commitment to remodeling homes for veterans is a part of Home Depot’s “Celebration of Service” campaign, which has helped transform the lives of 22,000 veterans. In addition to remodeling homes, Home Depot has also helped build housing for veterans who are homeless.

Selfies for Social Good

Home Depot urged their social media followers to help raise the funds to provide upgrades to disabled veterans’ homes. For every #ServiceSelfie shared on Twitter and Instagram during the campaign, Home Depot donated one dollar to non-profit organizations that help veterans with disabilities.

The campaign showed the importance of giving back while having fun. Donations we’re capped at one million dollars, which would be split evenly between the organizations. Each organization who participated received a minimum of $30,000 each for their efforts in helping veterans live to their fullest potential again.
