The Home Depot Foundation Awards Grant to Wiregrass Children’s Home | News
(DOTHAN, AL.)- The Wiregrass Children’s Home was recently awarded a $3,500 grant from the Home Depot Foundation to help pay for much needed repairs and maintenance at the Home. These funds were used to not only purchase enough paint and supplies to paint the entire inside of the Home, but were also used to purchase a new front door, a new back door and building supplies to construct a storage room.
The majority of the painting labor was provided through a group of incredible volunteers from the local Home Depot store through their Team Depot program. This program is “the Home Depot’s associate-led volunteer program, whereby associates work side-by-side to create life-long, meaningful relationships between the Company, our neighbors and our associates.”(via www.HomeDepot.com)
Christie Armstrong, Executive Director for the Home, was overwhelmed at the enthusiasm and support of the volunteers from Team Depot. “We are so blessed by the work that Team Depot did for the Wiregrass Children’s Home. Their generosity and willingness to serve were evident from the moment our partnership began. Words cannot begin to express our appreciation not only for the grant, but for the painting hours volunteered by our local Team Depot. This is just one more example of what happens when our community comes together to make a difference in the life of our children.”
