Home Depot Supports Deployed Troops

Home Depot has a program called Project Homefront.  Sgt. Stryker at http://www.sgtstryker.com brought it to my attention in an e-mail comments section on his blog.

Wandering through a small corner of blogland today, I came upon some old news that hasn’t been well-publicized, particularly among the mil-blogs and their friends. Or maybe it’s all a sham?

Home Depot apparently has a program through which they are helping deployed military personnel and their families by putting money and volunteer time into maintaining and repairing their homes. I’ve seen signs about this at the entrance to my local Home Depot … but that’s all.

Home Depot also recently announced a donation of $1 million in tools & supplies for the rebuilding of Iraq.

If this is all true, it’s a reason to consider Home Depot instead of Lowes or OSH or (ugh!) Sears.

Is it true? Is it a scam? I don’t know, I haven’t seen anything about it at my local Home Depot.

 

So I e-mailed Home Depot.  I got this:

 

Dear Mr. White,

 

Thank you for your interest in Project Homefront.  For information regarding the Project Homefront program, please refer to the following website:www.projecthomefront.org

We appreciate you taking the time to forward your thoughts regarding Home Depot’s donation to the war effort in Iraq and support of our troops.

Thank you again for taking the time to let us know where we exceeded your expectations.

Regards,Melissa

I don’t know about you, but I think this is a pretty cool program http://www.projecthomefront.org

 

Essentially, Home Depot is supplying tools and materials and coordinating volunteers to do repairs and maintenace on the homes of deployed soldiers.  I fully intend to lend a hand after I get home.

  1. Well, I checked this out not too long after you left, and they weren’t accepting applications anymore, checked today, and they aren’t accepting applications. Maggie Katzen
