Home Depot Volunteers Give Back


Home Depot believes strongly in volunteering to give back to their community. On May 6, more than 70 Home Depot volunteers showed Saginaw County what it means to LIVE UNITED.

After finding a local veteran homeowner, United Way Community Impact Assistant, Henrietta Watson, filed for a grant for this project and offered to help coordinate. After the grant was processed, the project began by assessing what the veteran homeowner needed to fully enjoy/utilize his home.

The homeowner received a new refridgerator, dishwasher, kitchen faucet, bathroom security fixtures and a ceiling fan. Along with other interior appliances and fixtures, the homeowner's exterior was also cleaned up. Home Depot volunteers replaced a front screen door, manicured the landscaping and built/enclosed a new back door.

"This project was very successful and everyone worked as a team to give the veteran and his wife a new way to enjoy their home," said Watson.

Thank you to all of the Home Depot volunteers who gave their time and resources to invest in a more enjoyable and safer home for this Saginaw County family.
