Home Depot Team Builds Outdoor Furniture For Veteran Counseling

0


NEW PORT RICHEY, FL – The Home Depot Foundation has partnered with Volunteers of America
of Florida to build 50 chairs and 10 tables for homeless and disabled veterans
and their families who have been affected by the pandemic.

Team Depot, The Home Depot’s associated volunteer force, worked alongside VOAF on the construction of the patio chairs and picnic tables. The furniture will provide outdoor spaces for VOAF staff to provide counseling, employment services and case management services to veteran residents on site.

According to the CDC, indoor spaces are riskier than outdoor spaces where it can be more difficult to separate people and where there is less ventilation. Therefore, the new outdoor space will help keep VOAF personnel and veterans, especially unvaccinated ones, safer and healthier.

“The furniture will help countless veterans who are suffering the negative effects of
Covid pandemic19. The furniture and the new outdoor space will allow our veterans and
VOAF personnel are safer and healthier. We are extremely grateful to Team Depot for doing this
possible, ”said VOAF’s Dani DiVittorio.

The project took place at 10 local Home Depot stores. Furniture will be dispersed by VOAF teams at VOAF veteran facilities across the state.

Giving back to wounded veterans, homeless and veterans is personal for The Home
Filing since over 35,000 of the company’s associates are veterans or active duty military personnel.

To date, The Home Depot Foundation has donated over $ 375 million to veterans in need
– and the foundation has pledged to invest half a billion dollars by 2025.
