Celebration of Service With The Home Depot!

I’m so excited to announce my partnership with The Home Depot and The Home Depot Celebration of Service Blog Network!

What is that you may ask?  Well last year, The Home Depot Foundation launched its first ever Celebration of Service volunteer campaign. And throughout the 2-month initiative, nearly 9,000 store associates worked side by side with veterans to complete 320 service projects across the country.  And today they are kicking off their 2nd annual Celebration of Service, and The Home Depot associate volunteers will be repairing and renovating 100 veteran homes in 13 cities across the country. Then, over the next two months through Veteran’s Day, they will complete more than 300 service projects benefitting veterans and their families. And I get to be a part of this!!

So over the next 4 months, I will be partnering with The Home Depot as a part of The Home Depot Celebration of Service Blog Network! As part of this network, I will be talking about the challenges Veterans face in our communities, participating in local service projects and events and exploring the steps that we can all take to reduce our home operating costs. Sound good? :)

And from September 6 to Veterans Day in November, store associate volunteers will complete hundreds of service projects–from making mobility modifications to the homes of injured veterans to renovating shelters for homeless veterans. Volunteer projects will also include energy efficient upgrades to homes of individual veterans and facilities that serve them to help reduce utility bills.

I will be traveling a little bit over the next couple of months and will be participating in a few service projects.  I have a feeling it’s going to be a life-changing experience and I am completely honored to be a part of this network.  You know I will keep you updated with everything!

So awesome right? I love companies that give back and this is for such a great cause. I can’t wait to see lives changed.

xxoo,

  1. Hi there – just came over from Google Reader via the link provided in this post and it 404’d me… just thought I’d let you know. :)

  2. What a GREAT cause!!! My nephew was one of the recipients of this cause just a year ago. He was deployed at the time and their house suffered some mild water damage in the basement. While cleaning it up, they discovered behind the sheet rock that the whole foundation was crumbling and their house was deemed unstable for occupancy. His wife was going to be left with nothing, until Home Depot came in and rebuilt their foundation for them. I can’t wait to hear more about what you are doing with them!

  3. How wonderful to get involved in such a worthwhile project! It’s nice to hear that you are giving back to the community…wish more people would outward focus on their communities and neighborhoods..setting the example for others. Thanks for all you do!
