Celebration of Service 2013

Each fall, between September 11 and November 11, The Home Depot Foundation mobilizes Team Depot, our associate-led volunteer corps, to work side-by-side with veterans to complete hundreds of projects across the country. Each volunteer project is designed to address unique needs of our nation’s heroes including retrofitting homes for wheelchair-bound veterans; creating accessible outdoor areas for veteran families to enjoy together; providing necessary repairs to transitional housing facilities; and landscaping outdoor areas at medical centers and residences for veterans and their families, and much more. Throughout the campaign thousands of Home Depot associates and supplier partners will complete 350 service projects to ensure all veterans have a safe place to call home.
