On September 6th, Home Depot employees from all over BC came to our Crisis Shelter to give it a much needed new coat of paint. Over the course of the day, they taped, touched up and painted over 11,000 square feet! At the end of the day, The Home Depot Canada Foundation also presented a cheque for $25,000 to fund upcoming renovations to the shelter! Our youth painted a board just for the occasion to express their gratitude for all the hard work by everyone at Home Depot, and we presented it to them on our rooftop garden.
The Home Depot Canada also helped us out this year with their Buy A Hammer, Build Our Community Campaign. The Vancouver, Cambie and Richmond stores sold $2 paper hammers and raised an impressive $10,636 to help fund the programs that we offer to our youth!
A huge thank you to everyone at the Home Depot Canada Foundation for making this day a tremendous success.
